The Haryana Police has been facing acute shortage of manpower as a result of which law & order, prevention and detection of crime and security duties are adversely affected. The Police Department was unable to fill up the vacancies in various ranks expeditiously due its heavy preoccupation with policing work. To cope with the problem of shortage of manpower in Police Department, Haryana Govt. decided to setup an independent agency to make recruitment in Police Department and accordingly Haryana Police Recruitment Board was setup vide Haryana Govt. notification dated 15.05.2013 to carry out selection of suitable candidates in a fair, transparent and merit based manner for making appointment against various categories of posts.
The main object of setting up the Haryana Police Recruitment Board is to make direct recruitment in various ranks in Police Ministerial Staff, Group “D” services and other services and posts of the Police Department.
The process of recruitment shall be initiated by the Board on receipt of requisition from the State Government and the Director General of Police.
