Roving Petrol police service acquires 75 new vehicles



The Roving Petrol police service came into effect a few years ago to ensure the security of citizens and improve the reach of police officers in outlying khoroos and districts. Since then, sixty vehicles of the service have been outdated and their guaranteed lifetime has already expired. Thus, a total of 105 new vehicles are set to be supplied to Ulaanbaatar City Police Department (UCPD) and Traffic Police Department with financing from the Ulaanbaatar City budget.

The first phase of the supply, which is 75 brand new and fully equipped Kia vehicles manufactured in April this year, were handed to 12 police divisions throughout six central districts in Ulaanbaatar on June 24. On July 1, the remaining 30 vehicles will be supplied to the emergency divisions of districts.

Each of the vehicles, including its spare tires, costs 18.5 million MNT.

Minister of Justice Kh.Temuujin, Chief of Ulaanbaatar City Representatives’ Council D.Battulga, Chief of UCPD Colonel G.Batjargal, Deputy of UCPD Police Colonel Sh.Ganbold, and President of Mongol Motors Group T.Buyan-Undrakh were all present at the handing-out ceremony.

Chief D.Battulga told the police force, “I’d like to congratulate and wish you all good luck for diligently serving your duty to ensure our citizens’ security and maintaining a pleasant environment to live in. I hope all of the police will use the vehicles efficiently and carefully.”

The Ulaanbaatar City budget has also allocated 1.5 billion MNT to spend on the installation of surveillance cameras for auto traffic and order monitoring purposes along the road between Officers’ Palace and Tavan Shar. The work starts today. Cameras are expected to assist the police to track down and detect any traffic violation.

Police officer of the First Police Division under the Chinggeltei District Police G.Amarbaysgalan said, “As we receive an average of 20 calls a day, our former vehicles got greatly worn out. These new vehicles are a great contribution to our jobs.”
