About 37,000 candidates have applied for 1,500 posts of constables to be inducted in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police department.

A police spokesman said that as the recruitment process would be conducted through National Testing Service (NTS), interference of officials in recruitments had been done away with.

The police spokesman said that police officers would have no role whatsoever in the recruit-

ment process except provision of requisite administrative and security assistance to the recruitment agency.

He said that recruitment of constables through NTS would be conducted simultaneously at Dera Ismail Khan, Bannu, Kohat, Peshawar, Mardan, Mingora, Timergara, Chitral, Abbottabad and Mansehra districts.

The spokesman said that as per the MoU signed between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police and NTS, the latter would hire the services of a retired army officer not below the rank of Lt-Col for conducting the physical measurement and physical endurance test at each testing centre.

Likewise, he said NTS would also be engaging the services of a retired army officer of the rank of colonel or above for overall supervision of physical measurement and endurance testing across the province.

The police spokesman said that in order to encourage the educated youth to join the police force, additional marks would be given to them on their applications.

Moreover, he said to give an opportunity to the special police officers to join the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police force, a five-year special concession in age and additional three marks would be offered to them.

The police official said that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Inspector General of Police Nasir Khan Durrani in a recent meeting with an NTS delegation had expressed the hope that the merit based recruitment would help bring positive change in police force and thana culture.

“I am confident that the constables recruited through fair and independent recruitment process will infuse a fresh spirit of service, honesty and impartiality in KP police,” he quoted the IGP as having said.
