The program with the head of the personnel department of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Altai Territory Lyubov Chursina was aired by the regional information TV channel “Katun 24”. During the interview, Lyubov Valerievna spoke about the procedure for admission to the service in the penal system, current vacancies in the units of the Penitentiary System of the region.
– Citizens from 18 to 40 years old who have served in the Armed Forces are entitled to enlist in the penal system. The health requirements of a candidate are, of course, stricter than those for civilian personnel. Which is understandable – service in uniform! Education for candidates for junior commanding staff should not be lower than secondary, for an officer’s position – not lower than secondary professional or higher. Basically, vacancies appear in the services of protection, regime and supervision of convicts. We also have our own medical and sanitary unit, which also requires medical specialists of various profiles.
Lyubov Valerievna told about admission to the educational organizations of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia:
– This year, universities have provided our department with 16 targeted recruitment places in educational organizations of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, which are located in the city of Novokuznetsk, Ryazan and Vologda. Applicants must be healthy, in good physical shape and have decent points for passing the unified state exam. Age restrictions – up to 25 years. After enrollment, the cadets are assigned the appropriate special rank, full allowances are paid, uniforms are issued, and free hostels and meals are provided.
Colonel Chursina also noted that the period of study in the educational institutions of the Federal Penitentiary Service is included in the length of service. Upon completion, the cadet is awarded the rank of lieutenant of the internal service and guaranteed employment in the units of the Penitentiary System of the Altai Territory.
The presenter asked Lyubov Valerievna about how young employees of the penal system are helped to adapt in the service?
– In the institutions of the penal system, mentoring work is developed at a sufficient level. Each young employee is assigned a mentor from among the most professionally trained employees by order. There are also “patron troikas”: a mentor – a young employee – a veteran. An annual competition of professional skills is held among chef couples for the title of “Best Mentor”. In addition, rallies of young employees, oath-taking ceremonies are held, where veterans are invited to talk with the younger generation, Colonel Chursina summed up.
