Employees of the patrol service of the internal affairs bodies of the Russian Federation celebrate their holiday on September 2.
On this day in 1923, the Central Administrative Directorate of the NKVD published the "Instruction to the guard policeman." This document regulated the general provisions on the guard service, as well as the rights and obligations of its employees.
By the summer of 1926, patrol units appeared in almost all Soviet cities. By this time, a uniform uniform was introduced for PPS employees and a distinctive sign was installed - a white metal shield with the name of the site and post number.
