On Saturday, the Punjab government announced to hire 10,300 policemen with an aim to further improve the law and order situation in the province.
According to the details, the enrollment would be done in Punjab police and Baloch Levies, for which Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar has given approval.
Promising to recruit the policemen on merit, CM Buzdar said that 10,300 constables would be hired in the Punjab police and 378 in Baloch Levies.
The provincial government is taking every possible step to guarantee law and order in Punjab. The recruitment will help in improving the law and order situation in tribal areas of Rajanpur and DG Khan.
Prior to this year, the Punjab government had lifted the ban on recruitments in the police department.
Now, the provincial government had decided to hire 300 policemen in the first phase. The move comes after Punjab Standing Committee on Finance approved a summary sent by the Home Department.
As per the sources, the hiring would be made in the leading police training school and technical cadre officials in the special branch.
