In 1993 - 2016 in the performance of duties, 764 law enforcement officers were died, 2 186 policemen were injured

Everyone knows that service in law enforcement is complicated. Every day they face complex situations, they guard the peace of society. And many of those who died in the service of duty! Let's try to look at the data published in the domestic media over the past 25 years.

We remind you that between 1993 and 2016, 764 law enforcement officers were died while 2,186 policemen were injured. During the 25 years of the establishment of the internal affairs bodies, 1,093 officers of the law-enforcement bodies and the National Guard were awarded for their heroism and courageous actions against criminals. Of these, 115 employees were posthumously awarded state awards.

Gaziz Baytasov who died in Taraz in 2011, during the resistance to the terrorist, was awarded the title "Halyk kаһаrmаny" for the first time in the history of the creation of the Kazakh police. Public association "International Association of Police" proposes to do November 12 - Day of Remembrance of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty. This is the practice that exists in the history of the world police. For example, in countries such as Australia, the United States, Canada, Israel, Russia, Ukraine, an annual Memorial Day for lost police officers was approved. In America, not even a day is spent, but a "week of remembrance".

A quarter of a century is a long time. During these 25 years, there are so many dead guards from bullets, at the hands of criminals.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs does not neglect the families of the deceased employees and honors the memory of their colleagues. So, let's remember the dead law enforcement officers.

15.

Serik Abildayev, Timur Begasylov, Ayan Galiyev, Zhalgas Keldybayev, Bauyrzhan Nurmukhanbetov, Meirambek Rakhmatullayev and Maksat Salimbayev awarded posthumously.

This was a short review. In one article it is impossible to accommodate such a list separately for each region. Now each regional department of the Interior in different ways holds Days of memory of heroically lost colleagues. In general, a special "Day of Remembrance" has not been approved in the country. Therefore, the proposal of the public association "International Association of Police" in Kazakhstan seems appropriate. Congratulations to the employees of law enforcement bodies, and we wish that your ranks are not reduced!
