BHOPAL: Twenty percent staff in each police station will be deputed for crime investigation and won’t be engaged in day-to-day law and order issues. “The decision has been taken by empowered committee of home department and would be made effective soon,” said principal secretary, home, RK Swai. The committee, in its meeting on Thursday, approved recruitment of police personnel on 5000 posts in different categories. After this recruitment, the process of segregating regular staff in police station for law and order and crime investigation would start.

The home department would issue a notification with asking officials to earmark officers and jawans for investigation.

It has been long pending demand of police to segregate staff for law and order and crime investigation so that the police personnel engaged in investigation could not be deployed in day to day law and order duty.

Home department officials said the new system would speed up investigation and prepare a competent team.  In the recruitment, the department will fill up vacant posts of 400 personnel for juvenile crimes. The principal secretary said, these personnel will be trained for dealing with juvenile crimes particularly. The government had announced recruitment of 21,000 posts in police and 16,000 recruitments have been made.
