Graduates and professionals interested in joining the Ghana Police Service can apply to be enlisted into the security service from next week.
The full details on how to apply and qualifications would be published in the national dailies on Monday, Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Cephas Arthur has disclosed.
“We are about enlisting graduate into the service… this particular one is concentrating on degree,” he told TV3’s Peter Adattor in an exclusive interview Friday. Supt. Arthur said the police will enlist people for general duties as well as doctors or medical specialists including nurses, auditors, communications engineers, public relations practitioners, legal officers among other areas.
He advised prospective police officers to check if they qualify before applying. The Director of Public Affairs also cautioned the general public to watch out for scammers who may want to take advantage of desperate people looking for employment. “We have not contracted any middlemen to recruit on our behalf,” Supt. Arthur warned.
Touching on the ongoing basic recruitment for senior high school graduates, Supt. Arthur said the recently taken examination paper has been marked and those who passed would be informed on the next step soon. “Latest by next week the list would be out for them to start the process,” he said but noted that he is not privy to the number that passed.
