Speaking at a press conference on April 11, Police Corps President Jaroslav Spišiak voiced his satisfaction with the performance of the police force in the first quarter of the year, the TASR newswire wrote.

Spišiak said he was particularly pleased with the work of traffic police, as the number of road collisions has been reduced 30 percent year-on-year. He also listed success in murder investigations and a drop in property-related crimes.

"A particular focus was placed on traffic accidents," said Spišiak as quoted TASR, adding, however, that police officers exceeded expectations in all indicators and posted better results than last year.

The number of minor offences dropped by nearly 1,100 in the first three months of 2011, while an additional 657 perpetrators of crimes and offences were tracked down this year compared to a year ago. Spišiak attributed the accomplishments to re-organisation of the Police Corps, modifications to how police officers are paid, and changes to the career advancement system.
