Women will be recruited on one third of the vacant 17,000 posts in Jharkhand Police,” said DGP DK Pandey.
“Many athletes being felicitated on Monday are women. Bringing more women in the police force will change the working methods of the Jharkhand Police. Women tend to keep their temper better than men and this will help in bettering the relationship between police force and public,” the DGP said.
He added, “Now the question is whether Jharkhand Police is ready for such a substantial number of policewomen in terms of infrastructure and facilities, female police line, washrooms, and such. There is a lot to be done and we will begin working right away.”
