THE Northern Division has so far recorded the largest number of short-listed candidates nationwide to undergo personal interviews as part of the police recruitment drive.

The police have selected a total of 189 personnel in the North and 114 in Lautoka, 105 in Nausori, 99 in Tavua and 48 in Sigatoka.

Following an intensive seven-day recruitment drive that started in the Eastern Division last month, deputy planning director ASP Aporosa Lutunauga said the response was overwhelming.

"The 555 short-listed candidates will undergo the next phase of personal interviews on the 19th of this month," he said.

"Of this number, 155 successful candidates will be chosen to march in for the six-month recruit course in June.

"We are carrying out the recruitment in Savusavu before moving to Suva on Friday and so far, we have short-listed 555 applicants who have passed the initial aptitude tests.

"Interested individuals residing in the Suva and greater areas who wish to pursue a career in the Fiji Police can present themselves for the preliminary selection process at the Fiji Police Academy this Friday from 8am to 11am."

ASP Lutunauga has, however, pleaded with those intending to be present at the recruitment drive to ensure they have the proper documentation.

"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 unfortunately had to turn applicants away to get the proper documents and some have opted not to come back, missing their opportunity."
