Police clear up confusion over old recruitment ad

The South African Police Service (SAPS) has dismissed misinformation circulating on social media about a recruitment drive for 10 000 entry-level police trainees.

According to the national police spokesperson Amanda van Wyk, the advertisement in question is an old job recruitment process that closed applications on August 31, 2023.

She said the first batch of 4 500 trainees for the 2024/25 intake has already begun training at various SAPS academies nationwide.

“The second batch of 5 500 recruits will commence with training in January 2025; this process is yet to be finalised,” she said.

Van Wyk urged the public to rely on official sources for accurate information on recruitment and job opportunities.

“Community members are encouraged to visit the SAPS’ website and other official social media platforms to stay informed of advertised posts,” said Van Wyk.
