“The National Police Service wishes to inform the general public that we have not announced any recruitment dates. When recruiting, we publicize the exercise via major dailies, radio stations, television and also share the same information on our website and social media accounts/pages.

“We wish to caution the public that we have not announced any recruitment dates and no fee is required for one to be recruited into the service. Appropriate action will be taken to ensure that the culprits are brought to book,” the post reads.
