Police operations need to be simplified

Feb 25, 2014
From wire reports, RIGA

Latvian Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma's proposal to increase state officials' salaries at the expense of staff cuts, when speaking about the situation in law enforcement institutions, is highly debatable, Interior Minister Rihards Kozlovskis said in a interview with LETA.

Interior Ministry officials with special rank already have much to do due to the formal procedures. Each police inspector must investigate up to 1,500 criminal cases on petty crime, spending a lot of time and resources, explains the minister, doubting the possibility of such cuts.

At the same time, there are also departments that require additional staff, for example - the Cyber Crimes Department, emphasizes Kozlovskis.

Kozlovskis believes that the solution should include reducing the functions of Interior Ministry officials with special rank and making police operations simpler.
