Orissa for giving permanent jobs to SPOs
Bhubaneswar: Special police officers
appointed in Orissa would be recruited as police constables
after completing three years of service, for which amendments
in recruitment rules would be made, Chief Secretary B K
Patnaik said on Wednesday.
"We will bring necessary amendments for streamlining
the service of SPOs. The aim is to make them permanent in the
police," Patnaik said.
On the recent Supreme Court direction against SPOs
appointed by the neighbouring Chhattishgarh, he said "the
method of recruitment and engagement of SPOs in Orissa is
different from other states."
SPOs in Orrisa did not directly confront Maoists as
in other states, a home department official said.
The state government initially appointed tribal
youths as SPOs to give them an opportunity to remain in the
mainstream instead of joining the Maoist brigade, he said.
Altogether 4,500 youths have so far been appointed as
SPOs in the state and the government was not adverse to
recruiting more under the scheme, he said.
