The National Police Commission has provided provision for junior police officers to present proposals concerning the new promotions procedure.
Accordingly, the Commission’s Secretary Ariyadasa Cooray stated that the proposals should be presented to the Police Commission in writing prior to the 27th of this month.
The former IGP has decided to promote junior officers from the sub inspector position to the lower grades under long term basis.
However, after the police commission withheld the promotions, a 5-member committee was appointed to prepare a procedure to promote the junior officers.
The committee presided by senior official of the Administrative Grade C.V. Gunwardena, convened a meeting last Friday.
During the meeting a decision was taken to enquire from the police officers with regard to the preparation of the new promotions procedure.
