Acting IG shows his colours-over 30,000 police promotions!

The request made by the Acting Inspector General of Police C.D. Wickramaratne for the promotion of 30,500 police officers has been approved by the Police Commission.

Accordingly, the Police Commission has forwarded the promotion circular to the Administration division of the Treasury Department for their recommendations.

Within the next week 30,500 police officers of various grades are scheduled to receive their promotions once the procedures are completed.

The promotion circular presented by IG C.D. Wickramaratne at the time he served as the head of the administration division to the former IG Pujith Jayasundara, had been lying at the Police Headquarters for months without any action being taken.
