Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Uttar Pradesh Police: In a significant stride towards bolstering women’s power in the state police, the Uttar Pradesh Police Recruitment and Promotion Board has unveiled plans for a massive recruitment drive. The upcoming recruitment cycle is set to bring in 60,224 constables, with approximately 12,000 positions specifically earmarked for women. Additionally, the government has greenlit recruitment in one of the three women corps of the Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), paving the way for the induction of 761 women.

This initiative comes on the heels of a broader recruitment campaign that will commence within the next two months. The comprehensive drive encompasses various branches, including Civil Police, PAC, Fire Services, and the Uttar Pradesh Special Security Force. The recruitment process will span approximately 80,000 posts, incorporating roles such as computer operators and programmers.

The commitment to gender diversity is evident as the rules stipulate that 20 percent of the recruits in PAC and other branches should be women. This concerted effort to increase women’s representation in the police force is poised to have a transformative impact. Notably, the number of women personnel in the state police has witnessed a substantial surge, rising from around 10,000 in 2017 to 40,000 over the last seven years.

“With the upcoming recruitments, this number is anticipated to surpass the 50,000 mark. The augmented presence of women in the police force will play a pivotal role in addressing issues related to crime and ensuring the security of women. Moreover, it will synergize with the state government’s initiatives, such as Mahila Desk, Mahila Beat Officer, Shakti Didi, and Mahila Station Officer (SO) in police stations, which are aimed at empowering and safeguarding women”.

This proactive approach to recruiting more women into the police force aligns with the broader vision of creating a more inclusive and gender-balanced law enforcement environment in Uttar Pradesh. The government’s commitment to fostering women’s representation reflects a strategic step towards building a safer and more equitable society.
