In October of last year, Police Major General Sardar Safarov was appointed to lead the Stepanakert patrol in Artsakh. This appointment marks the second time an Azerbaijani has been named as head of the Stepanakert police department.
Zaur Nasirov has recently been appointed as the new head of the Stepanakert police department in Artsakh. Born in 1980 and a police colonel, Nasirov was previously the deputy head of the Baku city police department for operational work. Since 2021, he has served as the head of the Goygol district police department.
Nasirov’s appointment comes after the depopulation of Artsakh, which means that he is only the second reported Azerbaijani to hold this position. His experience and expertise will undoubtedly be valuable assets to his new role, and we wish him all the best in his endeavors.
