Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said vacancies exist for 521 Inspectors, 52 women Inspectors, 1,861 Sergeants, 567 women Sergeants and 275 Sergeants in the driving division. These vacancies had arisen from December last year.

He said Police Chief had requested approval to fill the vacancies on a long-term basis based on seniority in service.
