AS of midday yesterday a total of 177 members of the public turned up at the Fiji Police Force recruitment drive at the Labasa Police Station.

The Fiji Police Academy Training Division is seeking recruits in Labasa under its training director SSP Seru Savou.

Academy representative ASP Hare Pene said the north was the last division where the recruitment program was being conducted.

"The recruitment is aimed at recruiting a total of 100 police recruits around the country and this has changed from the past practice when each division was given a quota of the amount of recruits to produce for training," he said.

"In this way we are just focusing on getting out the best police officers for the job as 70 recruits with passes in Form Seven education will be sent for the basic recruitment training while 30 with degree level qualifications will be sent for cadet training.

"With those Form Seven passes they will pass out as constables while the cadets will pass out of the academy at inspectorate rank."

ASP Pene said the recruitment was conducted in four phases.

"Recruits are screened under the verification of academic qualifications, aptitude test, fitness test and the panel of judges interview," he said.
