Govt to engage private placement firms for transparent, expeditious recruitments in Police


JAMMU: In a landmark decision that shall have a bearing on the process of future recruitments in the State, the Government today decided to engage reputed placement firms to make recruitments in the Police Department at non-gazetted level to fill nearly 4,000 posts lying vacant at various positions.

The Government shall hire services of the most-reputed private firms with proven track record for recruiting the best available talent in the State in a fair and transparent manner.


The Government took this decision in order to fill up these posts in the shortest possible time to improve the functioning of the Police department.

The Home Department has been asked to take necessary steps in this regard.

The State Government is also mulling to adopt similar mechanism to make recruitments in the Fire & Emergency Services Department.
