The Ulaanbaatar City Police Department has been upgrading its patrol vehicles with Russian-made Lada cars. Over 20 Lada cars have been delivered to patrol the streets of the Mongolian capital. The police plans to buy an additional 65 cars in 2020.
Apart from its ‘Lada’ programme, the UB Police Department has successfully been implementing social campaigns such as ‘One Moment’, ‘No need to rush!’ and ‘Let’s understand and respect’ in 2019 for raising awareness against road accidents and changing public attitudes. As a result, crime statistics have fallen by 20 percent in 2019 on last year.
