The local Petropavlovsk police department recently organised a flash mob of 100 schoolchildren to help promote law and order.
“For half an hour, more than 100 students from different schools in the same rhythm were dancing to popular hits of domestic and foreign musicians. We are happy that this time the children responded to our invitation and participated in the action. Through this dialogue, we have been able to convey to the young members of the society the principle that in any situation it is necessary to behave honorably, fairly and to respect the law,” said Deputy Chief of Internal Affairs of Petropavlovsk Asan Smagulov.
The event was called STOPKylmys (STOPCrime), during which police taught the children the principles of “zero tolerance” and quizzed them on their knowledge of the law. Students answered questions on traffic rules, administrative and criminal liability, and the students with the best answers were awarded notebooks, pens and other school supplies.
