National Police together with experts and MPs come to conclusion that the legislation regulating work of police must balance rights and obligations of police and citizens.
Kyiv, October 17, 2016. Today, Ukrainian legislation is not efficient enough to regulate work of the National Police. Filling these blank spots, it is important to establish a balance of rights and obligations of the police, which would allow police to act effectively and ensure protection of police officers and, at the same time, guarantee respect for citizens’ rights. It is desirable that all legislative initiatives on this issue should be proposed to open discussions with the participation of government representatives, experts from the public and the new patrol police. This was stated by participants of the discussion “Police efficiency and citizens’ rights. Finding a balance within the legislation” held at Ukraine Crisis Media Center.
