Dushanbe police launch project for traffic patrol units
DUSHANBE -- Police in Dushanbe have begun a pilot project aimed at shifting away from traffic police posts to patrol units, AsiaPlus reported Tuesday (December 5).
Traffic posts are assigned solely to enforce traffic safety regulations. The new patrol units will take on the task of maintaining public order, as well as enforcing traffic regulations, said officials.
The pilot project began December 1, Interior Ministry spokesman Umarjon Emomali told AsiaPlus.
Dushanbe has 10 traffic patrol cars at present. Traffic police posts will remain only on Dushanbe's central streets.
