  • The Ministry was instructed that it should, as a matter of urgency, recruit 500 men and women into the police force from all communities in the five governates.

Jobs will be open to members of all sects. A committee has been established and has already started interviewing candidates. Once candidates are hired they will be given six months of training and introduced to the police force, after which the process will begin anew in respect of a further 500 candidates.
