The Haryana government has approved 11,000 new constable posts in Haryana Police for which the process of recruitment would commence soon.
Facing a major manpower crunch with just 3,500 police personnel, Gurgaon is likely to be benefited with this.
This was disclosed by Ranjiv Singh Dalal, Director General of Police while presiding over state-level welfare meeting of police officers at Recruit Training Centre, Bhondsi in Gurgaon district on Monday.
Dalal said that the state government was taking steps to modernise the police force and provide every kind of facility to its personnel.
Special emphasis is being laid on the education of children of the police officials besides providing residential facility to them.
Dalal further said that many police training centres have been set up in Hisar, Sunaria village in Rohtak district, Ambala, Madhuban in Karnal district, Jind and Faridabad.
The DGP said that the state has four battalions of the Indian Reserve Battalion, out of which one is deployed in J&K and three in Haryana. Out of these three battalions, one would be deployed in Manesar.
For this, Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation has been requested to provide 10 acres, he added.
Dalal said that to provide residential facilities to police officials, quarters have been built in various districts including Panchkula, Sonepat and Gurgaon. Bhupinder Singh Hooda, chief minister, inaugurated 400 residential quarters built in Gurgaon Police Lines.
