Police Recruitment: Medical Screening for Applicants Set for April 16

The Police Service Commission (PSC) has fixed April 16, 2024, for the medical screening of applicants for recruitment into police constable.

This was announced by the PSC spokesperson, Ikechukwu Ani, in a statement yesterday.

The choice of April 16 was made to allow for the completion of the ongoing Muslim Ramadan fast and the Christian Lenten period, as well as all the religious obligations therein.

The screening, which is expected to last for two weeks, will signal the successful conclusion of the recruitment exercise.

During this period, specialist applicants who participated in the physical and credentials screening but were not involved in the JAMB-conducted computer-based tests will also be subjected to practical tests and medical screening.

The medical screening and practical tests are expected to take place in the 17 zonal command headquarters of the Nigeria Police Force and in Kaduna, Yobe, and Zamfara States, which have been accorded special considerations due to the security challenges in those states.

Candidates from these states will do the screening and practical tests in their states of origin.

Police Colleges situated in states hosting the zonal command headquarters will also provide venues for the exercises.

The Police Recruitment Board will contact shortlisted candidates with detailed information on where and when they are expected to arrive at the venues of their screening.

Successful candidates from the medical screening will proceed to Police Colleges for their mandatory training.
