The creation of the Tashkent militia started with the “October events”. On November 18, 1917, the Council of Commissars of the Turkistan Region decided to make the Red Guards from Workers and Soldiers' assistants to serve and protect personal and property security of citizens.
On February 16, 1919, according to the decision of the Central Executive Committee, comrade Frans Sirul was appointed as a head of the security department for the Tashkent city. Founded in 1918-1919 in the old city, the party squad was leaded by Mirkomil Mirsharipov. And the same squad in the new city was ruled by D. G. Shpilkov.
From 1917 up to 1933 there were two internal departments in Tashkent: 4 departments in the new city and 2 departments in the old city.
In 1920-1930 in Tashkent were established 2 new independent criminal investigation departments – the city department and the County department. The Tashkent district criminal investigation Department was ruled by Kurbon Mahmudov, and the second – by Mikhail Zinkin.
In 1930-1940, Tashkent city militia officers started fixing new national economy reforms not only in Tashkent city, but inside all of Uzbekistan territory.
At the end of 1941 Tashkent city consisted of six districts, and they were called: Kirov, Kuibyshev, Lenin, October, Stalin and Frunzensky. All of Tashkent militia Departments and divisions during the World War II operated both at the battlefield and in Uzbek country.
In the late 1950s and 1960s, the Tashkent city militia Department was a part of the Department of public order protection (then the Council of people's Commissars was called the Institution of public order protection).
Since 1965, the Institution of public order protection became as the Department of internal Affairs of the Tashkent city Council.
In 1970-1990 the structure of the city militia expanded.
After having independence in 1991, a new era has come for the country and for the system of internal Affairs.
As the Executive force of the Tashkent city administration, many responsibilities were assigned to the city militia. For example:
- Control over the calculation of industrial and agricultural products, compliance with the order on their distribution and prices.
- Public notification about the rules and orders of the city administration;
- Assistance for a public institution in carrying out its tasks.
By order of the Ministry of internal Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated 29.03.1993 "Executive Committee of internal Affairs of Tashkent "was renamed" to “The Main Department of internal affairs of Tashkent city".
At present days, “The Main Department of internal affairs of Tashkent” has become one of the strongest structures of the Ministry of internal Affairs. Now it consists of 12 administrations, 14 independent administrations, 2 brigades, 2 centers and 8 independent departments.
Like in every family, society and state, leaders play a huge role in the development of the law enforcement Agency of the capital. Below you can see a list of the Tashkent city chiefs of the militia, who made a great contribution to the activities of the structure:
