Police have decided to expand peer assessment targeting magistrates to combat bullying in the workplace.
The rank of magistrate is equivalent to that of a chief of the front-line police station.
Existing peer evaluations were conducted only if they were within five of those eligible for promotion.
From now on, the National Police Agency Civil Service Workers’ Council has made it mandatory for police officers who have been transferred to the relevant institution for more than three years to receive peer evaluation.
In the case of promotions to police officers and superintendents, the criteria for peer evaluation were also made to include those who had worked for 3 years or more in their respective organizations in the appropriate age for promotion.
