Police in the Mitchell’s Plain cluster gathered on Friday to recruit new candidates for the latest intake.

The cluster includes police stations of Philippi, Athlone, Grassy Park, Lansdowne, Lentegeur, Mitchell’s Plain, Steenberg and Strandfontein.

Grassy Park police spokesperson, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, speaking for the cluster, says once residents are successful in their applications – and undergo training at the police college – they will return to work at a station in their vicinity.

“Once we have selected the recruits to go through the process and [before they] go for training, they normally have an imbizo where they are introduced to the community so they can also have input ... If, for instance, they feel one of the candidates is not a good prospect, then the police recruiters will take that into consideration.

“But it is best if it is people from the area, because they also know the elements where they will end up working,” says Kleinsmith­.

Prospective candidates need to have a matric certificate, with no visible tattoos and a valid driver’s licence, or, at the very least, a learner’s licence.

Successful candidates will also be sent for psychometric and fitness tests which form part of the recruitment process, says Kleinsmith­.

“The recruitment office will let them know when the applicants are successful ... I am not sure when they are going to have the next intake, but they want us to recruit people now so that when they have an intake, they can call the applicants to let them know.”

Police visited malls and various business areas in the cluster.

Kleinsmith says police are also planning to go to high schools next week, as Grade 12 learners are also eligible even though they are still in school and have to write exams.

“What happens is that we keep these application forms and contact them. If there are people who would like a form, they can fetch it at a Human Resources Management office [at their closest police station]. They can also bring the form to the nearest police station and we will make sure that it gets to the recruitment office.”

Applications close on Friday 15 June.
