Ukrainian National Police chief Khatia Dekanoidze on June 4 introduced Ukraine's first mobile police office, which will run along Kyiv streets, and said such vehicles would appear in other Ukrainian towns and villages in future, according to the National Police's media liaison office.

"People will be able to talk [to policemen], submit applications, learn answers to the questions they're interested in," Khatia Dekanoidze said.

The first such mobile office has been launched in Kyiv, similar offices will appear in other towns and villages, and priority will be given to the rural areas where there are no proper police facilities.

Dekanoidze says that similar "offices on wheels" exist in Western countries. They are designed to service remote areas, in particular, when one policeman works in several villages. The mobile offices are equipped with PCs with Internet access. Mobile police offices require additional financing, including funds from the Ukrainian national budget.
