ABOUT 190 people attended the police recruitment drive in Lautoka on Wednesday.
Of these, 152 met the criteria set by the nation's law enforcement body.
Deputy director planning Assistant Superintendent of Police Aporosa Lutunauga said it was positive to note the attendance of people despite heavy rain in the Sugar City yesterday.
"As many as 152 of those candidates met the criteria after they set for the medical and police tests," he said.
"We are still in the process of selecting the best out of all the candidates. After all the drives are over, then we will be recruiting the best 155 candidates."
Mr Lutunauga said awareness programs in communities had drawn a diverse group of applicants.
"We held a recruitment drive in Sigatoka as well and we were pleased to see a good turnout.
He said the next recruitment drive would be held in Tavua on Friday.
The recruitment drive concludes in Lautoka today.
