Goa will soon be awash with cops: India Reserve Battalion (IRB) 1007 posts, 675 constables and 160 head constables.
Thanks to Mopa International airport coming up there, the IRB will be stationed in Pernem taluka.The Central government had cleared a third battalion for Goa in 2008 but the government of the time did not do anything about it. The land has already been acquired for the Central Industrial Securities Force. The other two existing battalions will be in Dharbandora and Quepem talukas.
