The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has announced a new recruitment policy.
According to the amended policy, potential police recruits are now required to be aged between 18- 22 years old and be in possession of a minimum of 5 Ordinary level passes which include Mathematics, English Language and Science attained in not more than two (2) sittings.
In a statement issued by Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba, those who were on a waiting list will no longer be considered for service.
Said Charamba in a statement:
AMENDMENT OF ZRP RECRUITMENT POLICY
The Zimbabwe Republic Police is currently inundated with enquiries on recruitment and some false messages are even circulating on social media platforms purporting that the organisation will soon embark on a recruitment drive.
The police wishes therefore to advise members of the public and those who had conducted interviews and had been put on the waiting list that the recruitment policy has been amended with immediate effect.
Potential police recruits are now required to be aged between 18-22 years old and be in possession of a minimum of 5 Ordinary level passes which include Mathematics, English Language and Science attained in not more than two (2) sittings. In addition the applicants should have a good background with no criminal record and then go through the whole police internal selection process.
In light of this new recruitment policy, all police applicants on the waiting list have been dispensed with and will no longer be considered for any recruitment in the Zimbabwe Republic Police.
Members of the public are therefore advised that future recruitment exercises will be advertised in both the print and electronic media when the need arises. Potential applicants will thus be invited to contact relevant recruitment offices whenever there is a pending exercise.
Meanwhile the Zimbabwe Republic Police wishes to express appreciation and gratitude to all applicants who had shown an interest in the service and were on the waiting list.ONLINE
