TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— That young and deserving men in police forces other than New Zealand see the avenues to promotion closed is apparent by an extract from a Melbourne paper which I enclose, and no doubt you will kindly insert. Here, I believe, a difference is made between inspectors, sergeants, and constables. The latter are compelled to retire at sixty years of age, while the former are not. Very little chance of promotion to inspector’s rank is, therefore, possible : A meeting of the members of the police force of the Castlemaine district was held for the purpose of considering the points set forth in a circular issued by Sergeant Gardiner, of East Melbourne, in view of the probability of the early introduction by the Government of au amending Police .Regulation Statute. The following resolutions were adopted: —“That all members of the force bs compelled to retire at sixty years of age; that the ago at which promotion shall cease be the same for all members of the force; that all stations be classified, and no member bo allowed to occupy other than that of his grade.” —I am, etc,, PROMOTION. Dunedin, October 17.
