Today, on 28 October, in the City of Masis of Ararat Marz, the solemn opening ceremony of a new office building of Masis Regional Division of the Judicial Acts Compulsory Enforcement Service of the Republic of Armenia was held. The event was attended by the management of the Service headed by Chief Compulsory Enforcement Officer of the Republic of Armenia, Major-General Mihran Poghosyan, Regional Governor of Ararat Marz Ruben Abrahamyan, as well as heads of territorial administration, local self-government and law-enforcement bodies and other officials.
The launch of the solemn ceremony was marked by the March of the Compulsory Enforcement Officer, after which Chief Compulsory Enforcement Officer of the Republic of Armenia, Major-General Mihran Poghosyan and Regional Governor of Ararat Marz Ruben Abrahamyan cut the symbolic ribbon at the entrance to the building of the Division.
Afterwards, the Chief Compulsory Enforcement of the Republic of Armenia toured the building, got acquainted with the activities that had been completed, the created conditions and the technical capacity.
Mihran Poghosyan mentioned that the efforts aimed at improving the functioning of Marz structures of the Service were always in the focus of the management and emphasized the importance of the proportional territorial development of the Service. He said the working conditions would contribute to the increase in the level of efficiency of compulsory enforcement officers and said he was certain that the compulsory enforcement officers would perform their tasks with a higher sense of responsibility.
“Today we can state that almost all Marz departments and divisions of the JACES are renovated and furnished. This is the result of years of hard work that is drawing to an end soon. The aim of establishing territorial divisions is to make the Service more accessible for citizens so that they are not obliged to reach a Marz centre to settle their issues,” the Chief Compulsory Enforcement of the Republic of Armenia told reporters.
He says the next step for the Service will be to undertake the opening of Citizen Prompt Service Offices in Marzes with a view to contributing to the provision of prompt and centralised services to citizens by minimising contact with the compulsory enforcement officer.
One of the main directions of the reforms underway within the JACES is the consistent improvement of working conditions for officers. The new office building of Masis Division, equipped with up-to-date computers, has been fully renovated and furnished at the expense of extra-budgetary funds of the JACES. It will provide services to people residing in 30 rural communities.
