According to preliminary calculations of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine, it is planned to attract about 19,000 policemen to maintain public order during the UEFA EURO 2012 matches, and other days - nearly 10,000 Interior Ministry agents, the ministry said in a statement.

"5 to 6 million visitors are expected to arrive in Ukraine, among them representatives of foreign police. The country's reputation in the international arena depends on the professionalism of the Ukrainian police," reads the statement, UKRINFORM reported.

Given the European standards (UEFA rules), the law enforcement agencies have identified the main tasks for themselves. In particular, the police are responsible for the public order on the territory adjacent to the stadium and in public spaces, overseeing the behavior of fans in the area of ticket control on the way to the stadium. This allows to reduce the number of personnel directly at the stadium, while strengthening police patrols in the streets.

The Interior Ministry said that work continues to install technical devices to control the law and order in the streets and other public areas. About 4,000 video cameras and almost 5,000 emergency police call systems are already mounted. In addition, police patrols are gradually equipped with global positioning systems (GPS).
