Police Entrance Examination Results: Reasons For The Delay

The need to readjust to new dispensation and infrastructure innovation are among the factors authorities say delayed the publication of results.

The fate of the candidates who sat for the 2017 police entrance examination is still hanging on the scale after the publication of the written part of the examination. It took almost ten months since the examination was written, precisely between August 05 and September 02, 2017, for the written part of the results to be published.

Authoritative sources at the General Delegation for National Security say the delay was as a result of the readjustments made in order to admit more youth into the profession, provide greater job opportunities, meticulously screen the examination to ensure transparency, impartiality and equity and above all, the need to undertake infrastructure innovation at the various training centres, notably the Police School in Mutengene.

That notwithstanding, the results proper of the written part were in effect, ready two weeks after.

Of this number, 5,000 wrote to be trained as Superintendants of Police, 17,000 as Assistant Superintendents of Police, 64,000 as Police Inspectors, and 70,000 as Constables.

The following positions were advertised: 80 places for Superintendants of Police, 110 for Assistant Superintendents of Police, 415 for Police Inspectors and 5,020 for Police Constables. In-service examination was equally organised for those seeking higher grades.

These include: 25 Superintendants of Police, 50 Assistant Superintendents of Police and 50 Inspectors. Special examinations were equally organised to recruit more technicians in various fields, notably: electricians, medics, drivers and musicians among others.

Organisation Procedure The new dispensation now takes into consideration exigencies of information and communication technology as well as those of digital economy. According to authorities of DGSN, all registration were made on-line prior to the depositing of registration documents. In effect, it consisted of on-line registration, attribution of registration numbers, payment of examination fee through Express Union microfinance before the depositing of documents on appointment.
