ARMED AND SECURITY FORCES DECRECT N° 6.918 Federal Police. The Rules of the Organic Law are partially amended.
Bs. As., 6/10/72
VISTO Expediente No. 199.664/I/72, by which the Federal Police encourages the modification of the articles. 215 and 216 of the regulation of the organic law of that institution approved by Decree No. 6580/1958, and
That the supplementary reports provided by art. 215 of the regulation of the Organic Law of the Federal Police allow to obtain valuable background for the qualification of the senior staff of the division, and it is therefore considered necessary to give it greater scope for the qualifiers and qualifications, also establishing a system that simplifies the work to be accomplished;
That regarding the reform promoted in the composition of the Qualifications Boards for the Senior Staff of the Federal Police -art. 216 of the precited regulatory text implies a conception that responds broadly to the principles that led to its creation, in accordance with the experiences gathered;
That within the grades to be described by the Higher Qualifications Board, the Commissioner is included, because of the transcendent fact that it constitutes the qualification and selection of those who will have access to the category of senior officers, which due to their organizational and institutional implications, must be the exclusive matter of the highest police hierarchies, in this case, the Commissioners General;
That the organic adjustment indicates the desirability of including among the steps qualified by the Qualifications Board No. 1 to the level of inspector officer, formerly in the area of competence of the Qualifications Board No. 2.
That the act of the qualification implies a transcendent consequence for the police career, therefore it was considered appropriate to dispense with the presence of the officers of the degree of sub-commissionary, in the qualifier, to maintain the organic guidelines observed in the remaining boards;
This is consistent with national policies 127 and 129 (Decree No. 46 of 17/6/1970);
For this reason, and attentively, the General Directorate of Legal Affairs of the Ministry of the Interior;
THE PRESIDENT OF THE ARGENTINA NATION
