The development came a little over a month after Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann had handed over appointment letters to 144 civilian candidates of legal experts and forensic experts during a function organized on May 18, 2023. With the joining of this batch, the total number of Civilian Support Staff will reach 221.

He said that to overcome major challenges faced by society today it is imperative that the Police force is updated as per requirements in the field of investigation, science, and technology.

He said that all the candidates have been selected completely on the basis of merit and had done a lot of hard work to get this post. As directed by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, the Punjab Police have adopted a foolproof mechanism for the entire recruitment process so that candidates should not have to face any legal issues after joining, he added.

Director PBI LK Yadav said that all these officers, who are commerce/finance graduates and hold experience of seven years as Financial officers and two years of experience for Assistant Financial Officers, will help to curb the economic/financial related frauds. After the completion of mandatory training these newly recruited officers will be posted at different divisions/districts to support the Investigation Officer(s)/ Special Investigation Teams (SITs) in tracing the financial trail viz a viz bank accounts, balance sheets, account books etc. to locate the proceeds of crime, he added.

Meanwhile, the recruitment of Financial Officers will also help in implementing the process of attachment of property of criminals, especially drug smugglers, gangsters and terrorists.
