By Diana Aliyeva – Trend:
A meeting dedicated to implementation of tasks on increasing the effectiveness of offense prevention and combating crime, solving problems in this direction was recently held under the chairmanship of Uzbekistan’s President Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
The meeting was attended by members of parliament and government, responsible employees of law enforcement and supervisory bodies, as well as representatives of civil society institutions. Heads of local authorities and other responsible departments participated in it through a video conference.
At the meeting, special attention was also paid to issues of eliminating unemployment, which is one of the main factors in preventing crime, the Uzbek president’s press service said in a statement.
In this regard, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev focused on the fact that more than 16,000 people, who committed crimes, are unemployed.
He noted that for preventing this, a head of each sector should fully support business entities in the territory entrusted to him, promote creation of new workplaces, and take specific measures for ensuring employment of unemployed citizens.
Another relevant issue is discrepancy with the requirements of today’s measures taken on ensuring road safety. Thus, 2,031 people died and 7,622 people were injured as a result of about 8,000 traffic accidents over the past 10 months.
The main reasons of these incidents are serious problems with culture of compliance with the Road Traffic Rules by citizens.
Taking this into account, instructions were given to responsible officials on improving the road traffic culture of drivers and pedestrians, equipping roads with modern technical means of ensuring traffic safety.
