Police personnel, court cases

10 Years of Civil Governance - Part 9

Police personnel, court cases

After the crime statistics, the Perspective Institute discussed the police staff:
“The staff of the police has been increased to more than 3,500 in the National Cooperation Program, 33,450 in 2010 and 39,813 in 2018. A security career was introduced in 2015, which started with a 30 percent salary increase, and a gross benefit of half a million forints was paid at the end of the year. The increase in the number of staff ensured that all settlements in Hungary were covered by a district commission district. ”

According to EU comparisons, we are also doing well, because while in the EU there were an average of 326 police officers per 100,000 people in 2017, in Hungary there are 406 people (1). The Standard, of course, envisions a shortage of staff (2), although in their case it is the usual double standard. Referring to a survey, an article by Origo (3) stated that 90 percent of Hungarians believe that police officers do their job well. And 80 percent of citizens find the authorities fit and humane.

With regard to courts, the description went on as follows:
“Court proceedings have been speeded up by both legislative changes and the creation of substantive conditions. The 2016 CXXX. under the law, it is already possible to file an objection if the court has failed to comply with its obligation to complete the lawsuits within a reasonable time. As a result of the joint work of the Ministry of Justice and the OBH, civil proceedings can be initiated with, among other things, only 9-page forms instead of the new 21 pages. The duration of administrative cases in Hungary is the fourth and that of civil cases is the fifth shortest in the European Union. "

If we have already examined the number of police officers at the EU level, let's make an EU comparison here as well! According to the 2019 EU Justice Scoreboard (4), we are stable in all case groups in terms of litigation (Figure 5-9) and our decision efficiency is acceptable (Figure 10-12). (4) contains further interesting statements.

Viewpoint Institute also covered judicial e-administration:
'In the spirit of cutting red tape, full e-administration has been completed by 2018 (5), and the litigation calculator can be used to calculate the expected duration of the proceedings, and the electronic notification system notifies the parties to the proceedings by SMS or e-mail. The online court payment portal allows for the online payment of payment obligations incurred in the course of proceedings, and the "e-file" provides customers with a virtual opportunity to view documents.
