    Looks more like a optical device with thermal and rangefinding capability.

    Those laser scanners have huge optical windows.

    MOSCOW, July 7 -. RIA Novosti Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on increasing State Russian Interior Ministry employees in more than 64 thousand people, the corresponding document published on the official web portal of legal information on Thursday.

    "Set a limit personnel of law-enforcement bodies of the Russian Federation (without personnel for the protection and maintenance of buildings), funded by budgetary allocations of the federal budget, in the amount of 1,067,876 units, including the employees of law enforcement bodies of the Russian Federation of affairs in the amount of 872 970 people, federal state civil employees 17,376 people, workers - 177 530 people, "- said in the document. Previously, the limit state MIA was 1,003,232 people.

    In early April, Russian President Vladimir Putin abolished the Federal Drug Control Service and the FMS as an independent federal agency, placing them under the jurisdiction of Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, and on the basis of the internal troops and special units of the Interior Ministry created a new power structure - Rosgvardiyu.

    NOTES:
    - increase due to absorption of Migration and Drug Control Services
    - total still includes those units that will be going into the National Guard
    - servicemen increase from 835,825 > 872,970
    - less servicemen then I was expecting but it appears most of the Migration Service were Civil Servants
    - Civil Servants and civilian employees increase from 167,347 > 194,906
    - not mentioned here but previously announced that with the addition of the Drug Control with the Police, the Criminal Investigation Division was increased to 48,156 staff

    MOSCOW, Oct. 17 - RIA Novosti. Deputy Chief of the Main Directorate for Combating Extremism of the Interior Ministry Vladimir Makarov reported on the reduction of the "most working units" in the department that deal with the fight against crime.

    "We work honestly, we are not corrupt, the guys are working on enthusiasm, and now they decided to reduce us," Makarov said at a meeting of the HRC "Public Participation in Countering Extremism and Terrorism."

    According to him, currently about three thousand people are engaged in the fight against extremism in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, as well as a small administration in the prosecutor's office and the FSB.

    Makarov noted that by small forces law enforcement officers were able for almost 10 years to prevent the radicalization of society, to crush the wave of violent crime.

    He added that the cuts, in particular, were touched upon by the Main Directorate for Economic Security and Anti-Corruption (GUEBiPK) and the Criminal Investigation Department.

    That doesn't make sense, since these units were merged with the National Guard and are fighting extremism, and they are getting a higher budget than the military at 1.2T rubles.

    These are the regular police forces. The old MVD (Ministry of Interior) was divided into the Police and the National Guard.

    Why not give Putin the credit he deserves? The prison population of Russia was around 1 million before Putin
    reformed the judicial system. Yeltsin did f*ck all to reform the system and instead stuffed the prisons with
    people who should have been either fined or paroled. Putin's reforms introduced jury trials and parole.
    The initial reduction was 180,000 and this has increased to almost 380,000.

    Comparing the current prison population to that before 1991 is BS. It makes it look like the drop happened
    during the rule of Yeltsin, which is simply not true.

    The most recent incarceration rate in Russia is 448 per 100,000 people. In the US it is 693.

    your telling me regular police force is 3,000 people? What?

    Even statistics show there are more police officers per capita in Russia than any other country. Unless there is a lot of information being left out.

    Read post #66 above, the police would be 872,000 less the 340,000 transferred to the National Guard = 532,000. Of this the CID (detective or plainclothes force) numbers 48,000. The anti-extremist or terrorist branch would have 3,000 policemen (plainclothes). Apparently the detective force is facing cut-backs.

    And just to clarify there are two more Investigative agencies, the FSB (security) and the Federal Investigative Committee (federal detective force like the FBI). The FSB would be like the NSA and Homeland Security combined.

    New MVD authorized strength is 894,871. Reduction of ~10,000 staff apparently all from the Traffic Police (55,000 > 45,000)

    In spite of all the youtube dashcam videos of Russian road chaos, a reduction in traffic police must indicate an attenuation in the need for
    high levels of policing.

    https://www.statista.com/statistics/437986/number-of-road-deaths-in-russia/

    The above stops in 2015, but a downward trend in road fatalities is apparent 2007: 33,308 --> 23,114

    It is hard to find more recent data. Most links that I find using Google including Wikicrapia are obsolete and refer to old data.
