Statistics of recent years show an annual decrease in crimes committed by minors by an average of 6%, and this year by 9%. This was announced on the site of the Central Communications Service by the head of the juvenile police office of the RK MIA CAP, Aset Ospanov, Kazpravda.kz reports.
Aset Ospanov said that 2036 school police inspectors provide law and order in schools. They annually identify more than 1.5 thousand adolescents who are avoiding study, whose parents neglect their upbringing and training.
Often the causes of offenses by children are problems in the family, alcohol abuse by parents, lack of regular income and other problems.
"Therefore, since April this year, on the initiative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, medical and social registration of troubled families with minors is practiced," the speaker informed.
According to him, the Ministry of Internal Affairs has repeatedly raised before local executive bodies the issue of the need to increase the level of security in educational institutions.
For this, video surveillance standards have been developed and places for installing cameras were identified, enabling control over the entire territory of schools and prevention on unauthorized persons’ entrance.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs has repeatedly raised the issue of organizing access control in schools by security organizations and installing access control systems (turnstiles, metal detectors, card system).
“We are confident that the work carried out will significantly improve security in educational institutions and minimize the number of unlawful acts among students,” A. Ospanov summarized.
