“The Minister of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, General of the Police of the Russian Federation Vladimir Kolokoltsev visited the Seoul Police Agency as part of his working visit to the Republic of Korea,” reported the official representative of the MIA of Russia Irina Volk.
The Chief of the Russian MIA got acquainted with the organization of work of the largest police unit in the country, numbering 135 thousand people, the structure of which includes 32 territorial divisions, including the police division at the airport of Kimpo, as well as the transport police on the river Hangan, horse police and special forces. At the headquarters located in the center of Seoul there serve 3,500 officers.
Particular attention was given to the Situational Operations Center. This is a modern and high-tech complex in which police officers take information about incidents. The system allows you to determine, subject to the applicant's consent, the location of the mobile phone from which the call comes. The call center receives up to 12,000 messages a day.
A virtual map was presented to the delegation of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. On that map in the real time mode, the location of police patrol cars is displayed, which the duty-officer directs to the victims by the shortest route. The number and frequency of calls and appeals are taken into account in developing proactive measures to ensure public order, in particular, for increasing the number of patrol vehicles on certain days in specific locations.
In addition, Vladimir Kolokoltsev visited the United Information Center for Road Traffic Control, which employs around-the clock 20 police officers and 16 technical staff. In the operating room there are 100 monitors, which display images from 436 video cameras installed on the streets of the city.
One of the functions of the Center is round-the-clock informing the population about the traffic situation through WEB-sites, social networks, radio stations, and also through a phone hot-line.
“The Russian Minister appreciated highly the level of training of Seoul police officers, as well as their technical equipment,” added Irina Volk.
