Interviews to select the qualified recruits will be held on August 23 and 24 at the Batticaloa, Trincomalee, Ampara, Akkaraipattu, Muttur and Pottuvil police stations. Only residents in respective areas could apply for the post, the press release said.

Meanwhile, Trincomalee Police Headquarters Wednesday through loudhailers made announcements in Tamil and Sinhalese languages, saying that those who want to join the Police service and have the minimum qualifications could apply for the post of reserve sub-police inspectors and constables.

The minimum qualifications are passes in six subjects including mother tongue in the GCE O/L examination between age 18-30, with certain height and other physical size requirements. Applicants could present themselves at the interviews to be held on August 23 and 24 at the Trincomalee police station, police sources said.
