In the “Action Program of the Mongolian Government of 2012-2016” is stated that functions such as maintenance of a public order and prevention of a crime are to be organized within the local authority, to improve the rights and responsibilities of a state and state employees and to implement the principles being transparent and serving for the citizens. In the Parliament decree 63, Appendix 4 of 2012 on “To approve the action strategy of a Ministry and structural change program” are raised main intentions as to organize the implementation of a policy on a judicial reform of subordinated agencies.
The law enforcement, the service to maintain a public safety have obliged to Police functions and the law enforcement reform has laid the foundation by the new “Police law /revised version/” which was approved on 5 July 2013 by State Great Khural.
Some foreign leading experts and scientists have evaluated that making a professional and technological reform in a Mongolian Police will provide main terms of showing the police service to citizens more sufficient and immediate. And also recommended that the attention and active interruption of the Government of Mongolia, National Police Agency and other related international organizations are required, to proceed from the soviet system to the new modern police system, acquiring back the trust of citizens and improving police work into professional level by making a reform in an international, large scale and based on a long lasting co operation.
According to a research, the public have evaluated that police are formalistic, aggressive, lack of ethics, lack of professional skills, interacts with citizens unequally, police senior officials do influence to the lower officials’ independent circumstances, police are paying more attention to consumptive and wealthy people.
From the other hand, depreciating, slandering and insulting the police officers from public, has become a common phenomenon. Also it is determined that the police are misbehaving with the citizens when they are being stressed and depressing because of their uncertain working hours, lack of time to spend for their families and so on.
According to a research which was made to determine the satisfaction of the public to a police service, 70 percent of them have answered medium and lower, and 50 percent of them have answered that police cultural behavior is poor.
After the approval of the new Police law /revised version/ and its implementation from 1 January 2014, the police have acquired many possibilities and advantages such as: have approved the procedure code and law, have started to upgrade the technological equipments for the agency and personnel duty, raised up the willingness and tendency in government, public and police personnel to make a reform in police organization, to develop the technology of an organization’s procedure, to increase the standards of techniques to an international level, to take support from foreign organizations for purpose of increasing the efficiency of the personnel.
The police are still facing the following problems and challenges such as: the organization's internal and external culture has not become formed, the absence of institutional values, personnel selection system has not renewed, lack of choice of a manager, management personnel training system is not established, officers with insufficient knowledge of foreign languages, not experienced to acquire new information, do not have enough skill to work as a group, personnel do often get ill, there has been a way of discrimination within the police according to their rank and position, lack of sufficient budget and irrational expenditures.
