KARACHI: Sindh police will deploy more than 2,800 traffic officers in Karachi in one of the biggest job vacancies advertised in the traffic sector in years, it emerged on Sunday.
In a recent announcement, law enforcement agencies mentioned that only candidates with Karachi domicile would be drafted into the army.
About 2,838 constables, in the BPS-5, will be deployed to control traffic throughout the city. However, there is no plan to recruit any police officers to carry out administrative duties as they can all be seen on the traffic control roads after their training.
“Sindh police have officially announced a new recruitment notice for the Karachi traffic police list with PTS [Pakistan Testing Service]”Said the official, quoting the official notice.
About 3,000 police officers left Karachi for their towns after completing five years
“This Karachi opening is for the residents of the Karachi district districts. This grinding will be done with PTS. Those who wish to apply during this period can visit the evaluation service website for all the relevant details. ”
According to the defined recruitment policy for this category, candidates with a minimum matric qualification are eligible to apply for a traffic constable post.
The age limit is 18 to 28 years and applicants who meet the eligibility criteria will be assessed on physical requirements, the official added.
“Candidates already employed in the public service are eligible to apply. Five percent of the quarter is set aside for juniors according to the Sindh government employment policy, ”he added.
The new announcement comes as the recruitment process for Sindh police to recruit more than 10,000 men and women is underway with a large recruiting group of Karachi youths living in the city.
In this year’s announcement, the law enforcement agency allocated a number of seats across the category from people with disabilities to members of the transgender community and members of a minority community.
Police have reported 10,490 posts and 6,655 alone in the Karachi list.
The new Karachi Road Police Introductory batch will help address the “labor crisis” facing a major law enforcement agency.
“In fact, about 3,000 traffic police officers in the city will be relocated to their towns in the various districts of Sindh after completing their five years in Karachi,” said the official.
“This could lead to a serious human resource problem in the law enforcement department. In a temporary settlement, Karachi police have offered staff to join the city police service, but only a few hundred have agreed to stay in the city. ”
Employed in 2016 in the various districts of Sindh, another 3,200 employees have been transferred to Karachi for five years in the name of addressing the shortage in the traffic sector in the police department.
Shortly after their transfer in the second half of 2016, they started working for the city traffic police and completed their five-year term in late 2021.
“The 3,200 workers will be transferred in stages,” said the official. On the other hand, the recruitment process, with their nine-month training and finally the course management course will take a year to complete and make these 2,838 new employees part of the army. “
The official hoped that after a year or so the traffic police in Karachi would be able to cope with the shortage which arose after the completion of the deployment period.
