THE Fiji Police Force will conduct a recruitment drive at the Nasova Police Academy today.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said they were expecting 70 new recruits and 30 cadet officers for this year's intake.

Insp Sokomuri said the training program for the new recruits and cadet officers would be for four months.

"The interview process is just for one day, so those interested in attending the interview are to report to Nasova police academy on Wednesday.

"The other two days will be used by officers conducting the interview to process the applicants.

"The recruitment centers will be the Fiji Police Academy in Nasova, Lautoka Police Station and the Labasa Police Station."

He said 70 places were being offered in the basic recruitment course and those officers would undergo 16 weeks of training before graduating as police officers.

"The minimum level of education is Form Seven pass and they must be under the age of 28," he said.

He added the police force would also be recruiting officer cadets.

"An important aspect is the minimum entry requirement that applicants must have is a degree and be of good character," Insp Sokomuri said.

He said the recruitment drive would be done in conjunction with basic recruitment drive.
