Isakov stressed that at the last meeting of the Security Council, President Sooronbay Jeenbekov outlined the fight against corruption as a priority in the work of law enforcement agencies of the country.
"Unfortunately, corruption exists in the Internal Affairs Agencies. These facts are unacceptable, since the policeman by contacting with citizens, are a reflection of the state authority, whose work generates an overall impression about them," Isakov said.
In addition, he drew particular attention to the need of strengthening the official discipline, professional development, as well as the professional culture of police officers in dealing with citizens.
"I earnestly ask you to pay attention to official discipline. Certain negative manifestations undermine the reputation of the whole system of the Internal Affairs Agencies. Mistrust of the population to state authorities is also caused by the fact that often police officers neglect to fulfill their official duties on the ground when dealing with ordinary citizens. The leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs needs to make appropriate conclusions on strengthening the official discipline, as well as properly selecting and appointing their staff by taking into account experience and professionalism," the Prime Minister said.
The Head of Government also stressed that he personally controls the issues of reforming the road safety system of the country. Isakov said that with the implementation of the project Smart City the functional activities of employees providing road safety will be reviewed.

The Premier emphasized that today, within the framework of the Digital Transformation Program Taza Koom, the General Prosecutor's Office together with the Ministry of Internal Affairs is developing a system for electronic record keeping of crimes – Electronnnyi Kup.
This system involves the creation of a single electronic center for counting and registration of crimes and will operate in real time mode. It will also allow one to track the progress of implementation of appeals from citizens before making a final decision on a certain issue.
The Head of the Government expressed his hope that in 2018 the employees of the Internal Affairs Agencies will approach the performance of their official duties with great responsibility.
"We face large-scale tasks to hold, specifically the Third World Nomad Games, the tourist season and other events of national and international importance this year, the preparation and conduct of which must be held at the highest level. I would like to stress the need for proper maintenance of public order and security of citizens of the country, both during the period of such events and in everyday life, "Isakov said.
