Ten new DIGs soon
The National Police Commission (NPC) will be appointing ten Senior Superintendents of Police to the ranks of Deputy Inspector General on March 10.
Fifty one Senior Superintendents of Police have applied for the rank of DIG. Among them are DIGs, who have obtained field promotions, NPC Secretary K.C. Logeswaran told The Sunday Times.
“The SSPs will be appointed to the ranks of DIG based on seniority and their performance as SSPs. There is a form which most of the SSPs have to fill. The completed forms will be handed over to the Inspector General of Police after recommendations have been made on them,” Mr. Logeswaran said.
“DIGs who have obtained field promotions will have to come in their SSP uniforms for the interviews. We will announce the appointments on March 10,” he said.
These interviews are to be scheduled on March 7,8 and 10.
In the meantime the NPC has approved eligibility criteria for selection of police officers to be appointed as officers in charge of police stations.
Chief inspectors, inspectors and sub-inspectors will be appointed to 414 police stations which will be graded as A1; A2; A3; B and C.
