Kathmandu. Spokesperson of Nepal Police, Senior Superintendent of Police Bishnukumar KC said that the recent amendment of the Police Regulations has added motivation and moral strength to the police personnel working at the lower level.
Speaking at a press meet and interaction program organized at the Police Headquarters on Tuesday, he said that the police personnel who have been working in the same post for the last 20 years have got more energy from the three posts added by amending the police regulations last time. “This has provided equal opportunities for professional development to the police personnel and also put an end to the situation where they have to stay in the same post for a long time,” KC said. He said that the addition of the post would make a difference in the service facilities of the police personnel and also raise the morale of the police.
The posts of Assistant Constable, Senior Constable and Senior Inspector of Police have been added in the police. The regulations have been amended to promote five-year-old police constables to assistant constables, police constables to senior police constables and police deputy inspectors to senior police deputy inspectors. Spokesperson KC said that five levels of office assistants have been added in the police regulations.
With the addition of three levels to amend the Police Regulations, the existing manpower will now be promoted 33 percent to Assistant Police Constable, 25 percent to Senior Police Constable and 33 percent to Senior Police Deputy Inspector. At present, Nepal Police has 47,053 police personnel, 14,989 police constables and 4,296 police deputy inspectors.
Earlier, the police personnel up to the post of Deputy Superintendent of Police, who had been holding the same post for 12 years, would be automatically promoted one month before the retirement. Now, an arrangement has been made to automatically give one level promotion to the police who retire after holding the same post for eight years. Spokesperson KC said that the arrangement has given self-confidence and encouragement to the police personnel.
