The Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs completed the final stage of the All-Russian children's drawing contest "My parents work in police!", which runs for the fifth year on the initiative of the Public Council and is sponsored by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation.
The contest was attended by more than 6,500 children aged 6 to 14 years throughout the country. During the qualifying rounds held in the MIA of Russia territorial departments there were selected 272 best works, which were sent to the Ministry contest commission.
The contest jury included members of the Public Council with the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia - Pavel Krasnorutskiy Andrei Romanenko and Yuri Shalimov, Scientific secretary of the Central Museum of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Vladimir Evdokimov, representatives of V.V. Vereshchagin Artists Studio with the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs - Honored Artist of Russia Yuri Orlov and Alexander Chagadaev.

It is dedicated to the heroism of police who saved people during the last year's autumn flood, which flooded more than 200 settlements in the Far East.
