It is the result of a consistent policy of the Ministry of anti-corruption, and other violations of the law in their own ranks and transparency of this work.
Thus, during the joint action for 8 months of current year in respect of employees started 307 of pre-trial investigations, including 170 – for corruption offences. Prosecuted 74 of the head different level, 52 of them for corruption.
Employees are held accountable for fraud, bribery, abuse of authority, falsification of evidence and other crimes.
Critical to this work is the personal responsibility of managers not taking proper preventive measures.
For example, head of Department of criminal-Executive system in Kyzylorda region dismissed in connection with the arrest for corruption crimes his Deputy.
Also for corruption crimes of the leaders of the supervised units lost posts of Deputy chiefs of police departments of Atyrau and Zhambyl regions.
At least as stringent measures are taken against leaders who violate ethical standards of behavior. In the Kostanay region, one of the Deputy chief of the police Department dismissed on negative motives for being in the service in a drunken state, the other dismissed for insulting a subordinate.

I demand from everyone — from private to General of fair service for the good of his people!” Yerlan Turgumbayev said during the past in September this year selector meeting with participation of heads of territorial departments of police, emergency and correctional system.
Such tasks are set for the new management of own security services, and staffing. One of the innovations of personnel work became mandatory interviews of candidates for Executive positions on the Personnel Committee of the interior Ministry, which corresponds to the principles of meritocracy and competition. Moreover, we consider all candidates who are in reserve, to ensure the adversarial process and determine the best match.
