In an interview with 3FM, Supt. Cephas Arthur explained that previous records show that the public has always expressed high interest in joining the police force whenever application processes are opened.
“It was partially anticipated because of the desire that members of the public have expressed over the few couple of years back.
“For about the past four to five years, you have seen that each time there has been police recruitment where people have fake recruitment a lot of people have expressed interest in joining…and so you could see that this interest was coming so it was partly anticipated”
He further stated that the police service has put adequate measures in place to recruit those who are genuinely interested and committed to work as police officers
“There is a saying that every profession is a calling, yes we expect that everybody who is yearning to join the service has received the calling that is the assumption, but we are not going to end it at just that point, we are going to ensure that everybody who is coming has indeed received a calling …and doesn’t have any ulterior motive,” he stated.
The Police Service has decided to resort to an electronic means in receiving applications as part of efforts at reducing the involvement of intermediaries.
