The history of the institute began in the post-war years. The country needed protection, but, unfortunately, there were practically no highly qualified employees left.
In 1948, the Mogilev NCO retraining school was opened. Education at the school lasted for 7 months. Many cadets were heroes of the Second World War, for which they received well-deserved orders and medals. During training, cadets were often involved in maintaining public order in the city during large events.
In 1952, the school was transformed into an educational institution for the training of operational personnel for the transport police. The term of training was increased to two years, and there were no analogues of such training in any city of the entire USSR. Therefore, students from all over the Soviet Union of different ages and nationalities came here.
In 1958, the Board of Honor was opened, which introduced the cadets with the names of the best graduates who contributed to the development of the Soviet militia.
Throughout its history, the school has repeatedly received awards of the republican and international level. These included the Red Banner, the Certificate of Merit of the Mogilev Regional Party Committee and the Regional Executive Committee, etc.
1975 marked the beginning of the reconstruction of the school. New buildings were built, the strategies of the educational process changed, a lot of attention was focused on extracurricular work.
The cadets of the school continued to take part in events of national importance. They ensured the safety of the townspeople and carried out special government assignments.
In 2014, the school received its official name Mogilev Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Belarus.
Throughout its history, the school has released several generations of employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, changed its name and educational process. But she never changed her goal — the training of qualified specialists for the internal affairs bodies.
Today the institute trains students on:
• Faculty of Police;
• department of distance learning.
The competitive basis of the institute assumes successful passing of three entrance examinations of the Centralized Testing in the Belarusian / Russian language, social science and foreign language.
Applicants are provided with free places to study. Students graduate after 4 years and have a bachelor's degree.
