The Police Service Commission (PSC) on Tuesday said in Abuja that it received 796,152 applications for enlistment into the Nigeria Police Force.

Ikechukwu Ani, Head, Press and Public Relations of the commission, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), that the recruitment site had been running effectively after initial hitches.
Ani said the commission does not anticipate any crowd as successful applicants would be invited batch by batch after collation of the names.

He said they would be communicated through their e-mail addresses.
The spokesman said there would be no room for compromise as selection and collation would be done electronically.

He said there was nothing to worry about the increasing number of applicants as the selection process would be strictly followed.

He said 229, 817 applications were received for Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) cadre.
Ani added that 188,315 and 378,315 applicants applied for the Inspector and Police Constable (PC) cadres respectively.

The commission recently said in a statement that it would recruit 500 Cadet ASPs, 500 cadet inspectors, 1,500 Specialist Officers and 7,500 constables in the recruitment of 10,000 policemen.
President Muhammadu Buhari approved the recruitment of 10,000 policemen into the nation’s police force to reinforce the police for better service.
