IntMin Dan: Police officers must enjoy authority

 •  English

Interior Minister Carmen Dan said on Tuesday that police officers must have authority and feel protected, which can be done by improving the police laws.

"The police officers must have authority and feel protected, which can be done by improving the police laws. Because I raised strengthening the protection they need at the beginning of my term, it is a theme that I have taken over full-heartedly, not just out of my duty as minister (...) There is a debate with both trade unions and the Police. I set up a mailing address and in two weeks' time, there were over 130 proposals coming from the Police (...) The frequency of requests is not aimed at wage increases; they say that they want additional equipment for physical protection, the obligation of patrols to comprise at least two people, and tightening sanctions for offences against public authority (...)," Dan told Romania TV private broadcaster.

She added that the new police laws could be completed by September and then lodged with Parliament.

Dan also said that she is also thinking about proposals for the amendment of the criminal legislation aimed at penalising offences against public authority and the first-degree murder of police officers, judges, gendarmes, or military in their line of duty, to include imprisonment.
