MANY turned up for the Fiji Police Force recruitment drive at Nasova Police Academy in Nasese yesterday.

Police chief of administration, Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Penjueli, said the objective of the recruitment drive was to identify candidates who met the criteria for vacant posts in the force.

ACP Penjueli said they had a process that was transparent so they could identify the best candidates to be recruited under the Fiji Police Force.

"We would be looking at those who have a genuine interest in joining the police force and making it their career," ACP Penjueli said.

"For just normal recruits we are looking at 70 officers and that is after they have undergone the process and the training.

"For the cadet officer we are basically looking at 30 officers that would be able to complete their training and graduate at the end of the program."

Recruits will undergo a series of tests and physical training at the Nasova Police Academy tomorrow.
