Day of employees of the investigating authorities of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia (06/04)

Every year on April 6, the professional holiday of employees of the investigative apparatus in the internal affairs bodies of the Russian Federation is celebrated.

By a decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of April 6, 1963, the right to conduct a preliminary investigation was transferred to the Ministry of Public Order, later renamed the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR. The introduction of the Decree into effect marked the beginning of the official activities of the investigative apparatus of the internal affairs bodies.

The staffing of the investigative apparatus in the Ministry of Internal Affairs proceeded on the basis of inquiry, and then on the basis of the prosecutor's office. This made it possible in a relatively short time to create an investigative apparatus in the system of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, capable of investigating crimes in a qualified, professional manner. Employees of the prosecutor's office helped to lay a solid foundation in the formation of a professional core of the preliminary investigation bodies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and left a good memory of themselves.
