AP Police Post Recruitment 2018 Notification
Posted May 5, 2018, 12:25 pm at 12:25
Be it the upcoming elections, or whatever, the youth of Andhra Pradesh will soon hear a good news from the Government. Official sources have confirmed that recruitment announcement for 18,000 police posts will be out next week.
In this context, 15,000 posts are lying vacant in the police department, and 3,000 posts in the Jails, SPF, Fire Department, and RTC. The government has brought some key changes in the recruitment process. After the State of Telangana has been formed, the (residual) AP Government has removed the mandatory 5 km run. Not only this, the cut off age has also been increased by 3 years.
According to the latest guidelines, candidates who are between 25 years to 28 years can apply for Police Constable Post, and who are below 28 can apply for SI posts. For SC & ST candidates, the age limit is fixed at 30 years, and 33 years respectively. What’s more interesting is that few bosses from the police department advised the government not to increase the age limit by more than 3 years, given the physical aspect of an individual.
