THE Fiji Police Force received 920 applications during its recent recruitment drive.

According to deputy director planning Assistant Superintendent of Police Aporosa Lutunauga, this signified the volume of unemployment in the country.

ASP Lutunauga said they registered applications from tertiary institution graduates with certificates and diploma qualifications.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Police Force's Strategic Planning, Policy, Research and Development Unit head Acting Commissioner of Police Henry Brown said their trip to the North was for the final phase of the recruitment process.

Mr Brown said after the formal interview they would return to Suva and assess the interviews before choosing new candidates for recruitment training.

"We will recruit 155 police officers from this drive and we have implemented recruitment centres around the country to cater for those interested," he said.
