Police recruitment: Successful candidates to begin training September

The Police Service Commission (PSC) says it has not fixed a date for the training of recently shortlisted candidates for constable and specialist cadre roles in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

In a statement on Monday, Ikechukwu Ani, PSC spokesperson, said the commission is currently working with the NPF to determine the training colleges.

The PSC spokesperson urged shortlisted candidates to ignore “fictitious” dates being circulated on social media.

Ani asked successful candidates to wait for an official announcement, noting that the commission would soon release the dates.

Last week, the commission released the list of 10,000 people shortlisted for constable and specialist cadre roles in the police force.

PSC said the successful applicants were spread across the 774 LGAs in the country.

The commission announced that 9,000 applicants were approved for recruitment for general duty, while 1,000 applicants were recruited for the specialist cadre.

In October 2023, the PSC, in conjunction with the NPF, invited applications for the constabulary role.

The commission also invited applications for enlistment as artisans in specialised fields.

In February, 171,956 applicants were shortlisted for computer-based tests as part of the recruitment process for the force.

The 171,956 applicants were those who applied for general duty positions.
