To provide job opportunities to policemen's kin who are not interested in joining the police force, the home department has set up a special recruitment centre at the Worli office of the Local Arms Unit-3.
SP Yadav, joint commissioner of police (administration), said: "The recruitment centre has been modelled on the lines of a conference room in a five-star hotel. We want to provide job opportunities to those who are not interested in joining the police department."
The centre will also groom youngsters for interviews with top-notch corporate firms, said a senior police officer.
The construction work for the centre has been completed and the department has started approaching human resources development (HRD) teams of renowned companies, said sources.
Yadav said that the companies that have been approached are interested in the concept and are keen on grooming the applicants for interviews.
The interviews and grooming session would be held twice a year.
"Because of the odd working hours and strenuous work pattern, our children are not interested in joining the force. Possessing the required degrees, they want jobs that pay well. The centre will help them find better opportunities and guide them on presentation skills," said a senior police officer on condition of anonymity as he is not authorised to speak to the media.
