«The crew of a mobile group consists of two employees of separate troops of the Patrol-Guard Service of the Internal Affairs Department of Issyk-Kul region, one inspector of the Traffic Safety Department and a district police officer. Five crews will patrol different sections of the city. They will oversee public order and road safety, as well as execution of court orders by persons who have committed domestic violence. All this will make it possible to promptly respond to calls from citizens and arrive at the scene within a few minutes,» the department said.
