||Police authority is an extremely huge institution within the administrative organization. How to establish a complete and sound promotion system to enable police officers to be promoted in a fair and reasonable method and by which to inspire their morale and reinforce police efficiency is exactly the essential mechanism to fulfill permanent service of police personnel and achieve the goal of administrative reformation. However, those who with outstanding performance don’t necessarily get promoted accordingly owing to numerous restrictions imposed on police officers’ promotion system. Consequently, the efficiency is failed to be improved and the situation of bad money driving out good occurs within the agency and result in adverse selection. Therefore, establishing a sound and complete promotion system can not only facilitate organizers to get promotion based on accomplishments and contributions individually by placing them in the right positions according to their professional specialties but also can inspire their morale to bring talents into full play and therefore increase working proficiency out of great loyalty. |
The establishment theory of police officers’ promotion system takes “theory” as the “basis” and “law” as the “application.” The decrees and regulations it acts pursuant to and applies to are divided into law, order, and slip law. Police officers’ promotion methods, standards, and operation principles are proclaimed in detail in the existing “Civil Service Employment Act,” “The Statute For Personnel Affairs Involving Police Staff,” “Police Officers’ Promotion Measures,” and “Regulation Governing the Extended Authorization of Personnel Affairs of National Police Agency, Ministry of the Interior.” Nevertheless, police officers’ promotion frequency is relatively higher compared to general civil service staff. Though it’s the outcome of considering the specialty of duty and business, police officers’ positions are adjusted easily owing to punishment and therefore they have to adapt to new environment all the time. Whether it will result in adverse influence on social security preservation requires further exploration.
