THE Fiji Police Force will be short-listing 555 recruits for their basic training.

However, of the 555, only 155 will be passing-out and get drafted into the force as regulars.

Deputy director Planning Assistant Superintendent of Police Aporosa Lutunauga said the response to the recruitment drive held nationwide was overwhelming.

"We are currently carrying out the recruitment drive in Savusavu before moving to Suva on the 9th and so far, we have already short-listed 555 applicants who have passed the initial aptitude tests," he said.

"What we need is for applicants to provide the original and photocopies of their documents so that we are able to verify the two, as well as proper IDs.

"We have, unfortunately, had to turn applicants away to get the proper documents needed and some have opted not to come back so they've missed their opportunity."

The Labasa centre has so far recorded the highest number of short-listed candidates which was held on Monday.

In Nausori, 105 people showed up, 48 in Sigatoka, 114 in Lautoka, 99 in Tavua and 189 showed up in Labasa.

The final leg of the recruitment drive will be held today at the Fiji Police Academy.
