Every year on June 23, Kazakhstan celebrates a professional holiday - Police Day.
In 1992, the Supreme Council of the Republic of Kazakhstan adopted the law "On the Internal Affairs Bodies of the Republic of Kazakhstan". This was the first legal act after the declaration of independence of the Republic, which defined the tasks and functions of the Kazakh police.
In 2007, by decree of the head of state, June 23 was officially approved as Police Day. On that day, the capital's Defenders of the Fatherland Park was full of scarlet generals' stripes. Fifty-one generals, representatives of the ministries of internal affairs from eight Commonwealth countries: Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, who came specially to the country, honored the memory of those who died for the Motherland with a minute of silence and laid flowers at the monument.
