Police chief abolishes evaluation criteria established by his predecessor

Police President Tibor Gašpar has introduced new criteria for evaluating police officers, on which their remuneration will depend, the Pravda daily reported on March 26.

Police President Tibor Gašpar has introduced new criteria for evaluating police officers, on which their remuneration will depend, the Pravda daily reported on March 26.

The criteria will include knowledge of legislation, how many crimes and transgressions they have investigated and how promptly, and also whether they are polite when on duty. The current police management is scrapping the previous evaluation system launched by former police chief Jaroslav Spišiak, which encountered significant criticism at the time of its introduction. The new evaluation system is to be tested in the first half of 2013, Pravda wrote.

Regional police chiefs have been asked to comment on the proposal and later this week the Police Corps leadership will debate its legislative form. The main change will be to scrap so-called “collective goals”: under Spišiak, police teams were told in advance how many investigations to complete in one month, or how many charges to lay.
