In a major relief to the police forces, Karimnagar SP D. Joel Davis has announced that the police in the district would now be allowed to avail a weekly off.
The SP said that the police force was working round the week without any holiday and were under severe stress due to work and were falling prey to various ailments. “The state government was committed for the welfare of the police and providing weekly-off to the police force was a major step in this direction,” the SP said.
Guidelines for the weekly-off provision would be released soon and this would benefit over 4,000 police officials working in the district, sources informed. (INN)
