The Ghana Police Service Recruitment Requirements

The Ghana Police Service Recruitment Requirements

Edufia Foster

The Ghana Police Service is known to be the most visible arm of the government of ghana. It is used as an instrument for the implementation of law and order among the citizens of the nation. Today, I am giving out the Ghana Police service Recruitment Requirements.

The service aims to protect lives, properties and personal dignity of citizens. It operates with maximum commitment using democratic policing principles and appropriate technology.

Indeed, their efforts do not deviate from their new motto, “To Protect and Serve with Honor”.

Most youths in Ghana have now developed an interest to protect and serve their nation with honor as the police do. The Ghana Police Service does not close its doors to them, but give way for those who are eligible for the service.

Academic competence, physical appearance, and fitness, age, nationality, character and criminal records are put into consideration as part of the Ghana Police Service recruitment requirements.

The Director General of Human Resource Department, DCOP Beatrice Vib-Sanziri, signed and issued the Ghana Police Service recruitment requirements and general eligibility for 2017.

Nationality and Age

With respect to the Ghana Police Service requirements, an applicant should be a Ghanaian who is not below the age of 18 and above 25.

Requirement for Physical Appearance

Male applicants must be at least 5 feet 8 inches [173cm] tall and female applicants must be at least 5 feet 4 inches [163cm] tall. Also, one has to be fit aside from the height requirements. Note that strength is required to undergo recruitment processes.

Also, one has to be fit aside from the height requirements. Note that strength is required to undergo recruitment processes.

Also, you have to be fit aside from the height requirements. Note that strength is required to undergo recruitment processes.

Academic qualification

The Ghana Police Service recruitment requirement is not different from what most Ghanaian tertiary institutions require for admission.

That is a minimum of six (6) credits [A1-C6] at WASSCE, English language and Mathematics inclusive. Do not to forge fake results because you would be prosecuted for such a crime.

Applicants must also be of good character and without any criminal records.

If you are an eligible Ghanaian with the interest of being part of the service, do not hesitate. Begin to apply.
