Police on nationwide drive to recruit 4,000
Federal Police Director of Management Datuk Mortadza Nazarene said, however, the recruitment would be carried out in stages depending on vacancies and the requirement.
He said the force was in the process of recruiting 4,000 new members for the various posts as had been stated in the manifesto of the government led by the Barisan Nasional in the 13th general election (GE13) recently.
"The recruitment is being carried out through the PSD (Public Service Department) and we will call up the eligible candidates to attend interviews at the relevant contingents before assigning them to the selected training centres.
"However, the recruitment will be carried out in stages although, usually, we will take them all at once and make the selection and reserve the others who are not selected," he said after attending the closing of the Inspector-General of Police Rugby Championship 2013 at Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT), here Sunday night.
Mortadza said that with improvements in the service scheme provided, it had drawn more people to join the force and the response received had been very encouraging.
He said there were three recruitments according to the ranks offered, namely constables for those who had passed the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), Cadet Sergeants for those with Diplomas, and Inspectors for those with Degrees.
