Beware fake vacancy ads in the South African Police

2019-02-07 06:00

The South African Police Service (SAPS) wishes to alert interested job seekers to the existence of bogus advertisements purporting to be from the SAPS, recruiting interested people to apply for police trainee intake.

The SAPS has received numerous enquiries from passionate South Africans expressing their wish to join as new recruits.

“There are NO vacancies for new recruits to join the SAPS at the moment. As soon as an announcement is made in this regard and advertisements have been published on the SAPS website and in print media, we will inform our online communities,” says the SAPS.

SAPS wishes to state that advertisements for any posts within its structures are, if and when they become available, placed in a range of newspapers in the country to reach as many potential and suitable candidates as possible.

The public should also bear in mind that they can view existing vacancies and obtain the official application forms from the official website: www.saps.gov.za

SAPS confirms that there are currently NO posts for police trainees and that these ads form part of a scam and should be ignored.

The public is urged and advised to be vigilant and not to be misled by any false advertisements or advertising scams and to report these activities to #CrimeStop on 08600 10111 or SMS Crime Line on 32211.
