"We should, finally, complete the judicial reform, the reform of prosecution, establish the State Investigation Bureau to ensure that our entire law-enforcement system and justice system is similar to our new Ukrainian police. This implies another attitude, new standards and respect for the law and citizens of the country", said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk after a swearing in ceremony for the new patrol police officers in Lviv on Sunday, August 23.

The Head of Government stressed that police is one of the elements demonstrating the process of upgrading the entire law enforcement system of the state: "These young people need support, including the judiciary and prosecutorial systems, investigative agencies, and the Security Service. They are the basis to build the security of citizens on, but such security should be based on the rule of law".

"The tasks to complete the overall reform of the law enforcement system, judicial system and procuracy authorities are for us to fulfill as a parliamentary coalition, and together with us - the President of Ukraine", said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

According to him, further steps "are crucial to build an integrated security system in the country, the justice system, which should be different".

The Prime Minister noted that Lviv is the second city after Kyiv, in which a new Ukrainian police appeared in the streets: "The day after tomorrow Odessa will launch patrolling by the new Ukrainian police. After that - Kharkiv, Mykolayiv. And I think by the end of year we will take a decision to launch a new Ukrainian police in other cities of the country."

Arseniy Yatsenyuk explained the experience gained in the work of the new Ukrainian police proves that it really works: "The citizens realized it would be different from what had been before. One should abide by law, not to violate traffic rules, respect the police officer. Just as the policeman respects, protects and serves such a citizen of his country."
