This year, SAPS management said it is seeking to attract youth between the ages of 18 and 30 for the 2019/2020 Basic Police Learning Development Programme (BLDP) intake.
Prospective applicants need to be in possession of a Senior Certificate/National Senior Certificate or National Certificate (Vocational). Those in possession of post matric qualifications and do not have criminal records and pending criminal cases are encouraged to apply. “Those who previously served in a government department and were subsequently dismissed due to misconduct are discouraged from applying,” SAPS said.
To ensure that SAPS enlists disciplined, upright and passionate candidates, only the right candidates will be enlisted. “All applicants will be subjected to fitness, psychometric and integrity testing as well as medical evaluations during the recruitment, selection and enlistment process. Vetting and fingerprint verifications will also be conducted.
“Successful police trainees will be subjected to continuous security and fitness screening, which included continuous verification of criminal profile as well as medical and physical fitness (inclusive of drug/substance abuse testing),” said SAPS.
During the training phase, trainees will receive a R4 500 stipend.
Successful applicants must take note that they will be trained at any SAPS Academy in South Africa and will be placed at any police station/unit in South Africa after completion of training.
Applications close on the 15th October 2019 and it must be noted that the Service will no longer receive applications after the closing date.
