МВД говорило о том, чтобы избавить полицию от образа "карателей" и системы "палка и галка"
МВД говорило о создании системы начисления баллов для оценки работы органов внутренних дел.
27 декабря министр внутренних дел Юрий Караев принял участие в заседании межведомственной экспертной группы по совершенствованию законодательства об административной ответственности. По мнению главы МВД, благосостояние граждан и качество их жизни не должны быть валютой. Министерство внутренних дел стремится к тому, чтобы к нему относились как к государственному учреждению, которое защищает и помогает людям, которые сталкиваются с незаконными проявлениями. Граждане, в том числе привлеченные к ответственности, должны однозначно воспринимать действия сотрудников правоохранительных органов как необходимые и справедливые. Министерство внутренних дел уже подготовило Инструкцию о порядке оценки деятельности органов внутренних дел по выполнению основных задач. Он основан на оценке только на конечном результате, без внесения планов или стандартов, отсутствия показателей административной практики в критериях оценки, перехода от удовлетворительной и неудовлетворительной оценки к внедрению системы баллов. Например, посредством контроля над наркотиками максимальное количество баллов присуждается подразделению за пресечение деятельности лаборатории наркотиков или преступной организации. В борьбе с коррупцией и экономическими преступлениями - не по количеству раскрытых преступлений, а по значимости предотвращенного ущерба.
