On the eve of the 100th anniversary of the Belarusian police, a sculpture "Minsk policeman" was installed in the capital. The Belarusian policeman of the early 20th century is depicted with a small dog and a lantern that lights up at night. Also, the policeman has different shoulder straps, one of the law enforcement officers, the other – of the military, because most of the policemen at that time were former soldiers.
