Respected servicemen and veterans of the Police,
I cordially congratulated you on the Day of Police.
I bow my head to the memory of those servicemen who perished defending the Motherland. Eternal glory and honor to them!
This traditional holiday is a good opportunity to estimate the carried out activities and action plans, think over omissions and achievements, minimize derelictions, secure and develop success.
You have chosen a very difficult and responsible profession, which to a great extent provides quiet and secure life to our citizens and is always in the focus of public attention. It is especially important for our young democratic republic and these very demands put before the Police are mainly conditioned by it.
Protection of civil rights and liberties, maintenance of law and order, struggle against criminality are the issues realization of which demands from every serviceman daily painstaking and vigilant work, high professionalism, civil courage and human qualities. I want to be sure that our Police have necessary potential to solve successfully these problems.
The Artsakh Republic authorities will keep doing everything possible to improve social and working conditions of the policemen, modernize technical equipment and to make the service more efficient.
Dear servicemen, I congratulate you once again on your professional holiday and wish you peace, robust health and all the best.
