The police warn potential employment seekers to be wary of a hoax police advert circulating on social media and other channels. The advert indicates that there are vacant internship opportunities as well as vacant positions available for the Basic Learning Development Programme (BLDP) intake within the service.

Lieutenant General Bonang Mgwenya, the deputy national commissioner of human resources management, says the South African Police Service (SAPS) categorically states that there are currently no internship and Basic Learning Development Programme (BLDP) posts available as yet. Where to look for jobs

He says when posts do become vacant, the service will advertise through the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) website, the police website, mainstream media and internal email notices.

“The public is warned not to fall prey to these scams. These fabricated adverts are misleading and are driven by faceless and malicious individuals.

“The vacant posts will be advertised on the police website when there are posts that are available. The public is also reminded that employment at the police is not for sale,” says Mgwenya.

He went on to say: “Usually, a scammer will try to extort money from his or her victims. The public must be extra vigilant and contact their nearest police station for clarity and information when in doubt”.
