Police Media Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara has said that the promotion procedure of the Police Service will be restructured and initiatives taken to eliminate the efficiency examination system.
Expressing views to ITN, the Police Media Spokesman mentioned that the new programme is being planned on the instructions of Secretary to the Ministry of Public Order and Christian Affairs.
The Police Media Spokesman said that the recruitment of Police Officers to the Department is being carried out under four positions. They have to face an efficiency examination to seek promotion. However, as a controversy has surfaced with respect to this strategy, it is planned to restructure this procedure for promotions. Accordingly, the Secretary to the Ministry of Public Order and Christian Affairs has decided to take the necessary initiatives to scrap this efficiency examination system in the granting of promotions.
