The award was the result of a contest organised for the first time on the eve of the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the formation of the Kazakh police in June.
The contest was sponsored by the Administrative Police Department of the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) of the East Kazakhstan region.
Senior State Traffic Inspector of the Shemonaikha district Major Serik Tolesov took the second place and the third place was taken by the Senior State Traffic Inspector of the city of Ridder Major Sayat Orazbayev.
Thirteen state inspectors of the city and regional divisions of the departments of internal affairs competed. They were required to demonstrate their knowledge of the legal acts related to the ethical code of civil servants, the laws of Kazakhstan On Combating Corruption, On Law Enforcement Service, On Internal Affairs Authorities of Kazakhstan and the Traffic Rules. After demonstrating their knowledge, participants were tested on their driving skills at an autodrome.
