SL Police to recruit 500 in the East

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 20 August 2003, 15:00 GMT]
Five hundred constables and fifty reserve sub-inspectors are to be recruited to serve in several police divisions in the eastern province, Sri Lanka’s Police Headquarters in Colombo said in a press release Wednesday. The decision by the Defence Ministry to recruit more police personnel for the East was made following a conference held by the Ministry Tuesday in Colombo to review the security situation in the eastern province, sources said.

At the conference, the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress leader and Minister Mr.Rauff Hakeem made a request to ensure security to Muslims by recruiting more local people to the police force following killings of Muslims at Muttur and Sammanthurai by unidentified persons, sources said.

Interviews to select the qualified recruits will be held on August 23 and 24 at the Batticaloa, Trincomalee, Ampara, Akkaraipattu, Muttur and Pottuvil police stations. Only residents in respective areas could apply for the post, the press release said.

Meanwhile, Trincomalee Police Headquarters Wednesday through loudhailers made announcements in Tamil and Sinhalese languages, saying that those who want to join the Police service and have the minimum qualifications could apply for the post of reserve sub-police inspectors and constables.

The minimum qualifications are passes in six subjects including mother tongue in the GCE O/L examination between age 18-30, with certain height and other physical size requirements. Applicants could present themselves at the interviews to be held on August 23 and 24 at the Trincomalee police station, police sources said.
