Gurgaon, Sep 10 (IANS) Haryana has decided to expand its police force and has sanctioned 11,000 new posts of constables for the purpose, the state police chief said Monday.
Applications for the posts would be invited soon, Haryana Director General of Police (DGP) Ranjeev Singh Dalal told reporters after a state-level meeting on welfare of police officials at the Recruitment Training Centre (RTC) in Bhondsi, 11 km from here.
He said the government was also trying to provide facilities like more residences and schools for children of police personnel so that they could perform their duty with more dedication.
