The Zurich cantonal Council does not want to open the police service for foreigners. Who wants to work as a police officer, could have naturalized, he writes in a Thursday published a response to a postulate of AL and GLP. They demanded that foreigners with a permit C police officers.
It is of course useful, if the corps of the Canton police people putting it together, which will differ according to gender, ethnicity, professional gear, and ethnicity. Police officers with a migrant background would provide valuable services, just because of the language skills. There is, however, already today many police officers, which would have dual citizenship.
Currently, there is no shortage of candidates for police training. The cantonal police was in the comfortable position that you can choose from a wide variety of applications, writes the government. There is therefore no reason to renounce Swiss citizenship as a prerequisite.
The member of the Parliament will decide in one of its next sessions, whether or not it shall transfer the postulate or not.
Other cantons are more tolerant
Also in the city of Zurich, an identical proposal is pending. There are local councils of the GLP and the Greens demanded that a foreigner can be a COP with a permit C. The concern is quashed by the cantonal level, is done with the theme but also for the city of Zurich, because you can not introduce a rule of your own.
In other cantons is regulated by the admission-tolerant: In the Canton of Schwyz, for example, can also apply to "assimilated foreigners". In Basel-Stadt and Jura to the police service is also open to foreigners with a C permit. (hwe/sda)
