Greetings of Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Day of the National Police of Ukraine
I sincerely congratulate Ukrainian policemen on the professional holiday!
One of the first reforms of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was the transition from the Soviet-type police to the modern European police.
The national police in all countries are the face of the country, a mirror of its democracy and civilization. Looking at the bright young faces of new policemen, one realizes that our reform is moving forward successfully. The National Police of Ukraine has reached a new European level and stands in the guard of citizens' rights and security. Better than by any other words this is proved by the systematic improvement of crime detection indicators and the high level of people's trust in the new police.
I am confident that Ukrainian policemen will further continue to effectively fulfill the tasks of protecting life, health, rights, and freedoms of citizens, fighting crime, protecting public order, and will become one of the best in Europe!
I wish you good health, decent material support, new professional victories, and achievements! May God save you and your families!
