Why Soviets were always eager to join the police

Interesting A- A A+

Fighting crime wasn’t the only task the Soviet state empowered the police with. They also had to be wise mentors and educators in different areas for the masses: from the upbringing of children to questions about communist ideology, for starters.

“Fight hooliganism! Police officer, strongly suppress any breaches of the peace. Remember that impunity encourages hooligans and other perpetrators.” 
“Follow traffic rules!”
“A straight-A student is a warden’s support in solving service and operational tasks.”
"Persons committing offenses against public, socialist property are enemies of the people." (The Soviet Constitution of 1936, article 131) “Police officer! Keep a close eye on the nation’s wealth! This is your sacred duty!”
