Kathmandu, December 27

Nepal Police has written to the Ministry of Home Affairs, requesting the line ministry to create a minimum of 20,000 additional postings in the security agency.

A high-level source at Nepal Police said it pushed for the new postings after all seven provinces sought more human resources to meet their security requirements. The provincial police offices have maintained they are in need of more postings to make necessary security arrangements in the soon-to-be formed provincial assemblies and ministries.

The source informed that Nepal Police did not have reserve forces to be deputed to the provinces. The ministry has already established provincial police offices led by additional inspector general of police in each of the seven provinces. Previous five regional police offices were transformed into PPOs. Since Provinces 2 and 5 did not have regional police offices, their PPOs were set up in Janakpur and Dang, respectively.

“The Federal Police Act and the Provincial Police Act are in the making. Therefore, we are expecting new postings before the commencement of these laws as it takes time to recruit new human resources,” he said.

Meanwhile, Nepal Police is all set to conclude performance contract with all police units to make them more competent, strong, service-oriented and responsible by bringing about reforms in service delivery mechanisms as per its five-year strategic plan (2017-2022). The concerned office in-charge will be responsible for implementing the contract.
