In a recent announcement, the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has clarified the status of the ongoing recruitment process for constables, addressing concerns and misinformation surrounding the examination dates. This comes amidst a massive recruitment initiative to fill 10,000 vacancies, marking a crucial step in bolstering the law enforcement capabilities of the country.
Official Exam Date Yet to be Released
Contrary to circulating information on social media, the Police Service Commission (PSC), the overseeing body for the recruitment, has not officially declared the examination date. Dismissing the rumors, the PSC emphasizes the importance of relying only on updates from its recognized media platforms, such as its website, social media handles, and press releases.
Prospective candidates are urged to exercise caution and ignore any unofficial information regarding examination dates, ensuring they await official announcements from the PSC.
Stay Informed Through Official Channels
The PSC reaffirms its commitment to transparent communication and assures applicants that successful candidates from the earlier physical and credential screening stages will be duly notified of the official examination date in due course.
To avoid falling victim to misinformation, applicants are advised to regularly check the PSC’s official channels, including its website and social media handles, for updates. Additionally, the PSC will communicate with shortlisted candidates through SMS and email notifications, using the contact details provided during the online application process.

The examination for the Nigeria Police recruitment will be a computer-based aptitude test, administered by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). Candidates must meet the following requirements:
- Completion of online application and physical/credential screening.

What Follows the Examination?
Candidates who successfully pass the aptitude test will progress to subsequent stages of the recruitment process:
- Medical Examination: A comprehensive assessment of physical and mental fitness, including vision, hearing, blood pressure, blood sugar, HIV, hepatitis, and other tests.
- Final Selection: Based on performance in the examination, qualifications, state of origin, and adherence to the federal character principle. The results will be published on the PSC’s website and other media platforms.
- Training: Selected candidates will undergo a rigorous six-month training program at Police Colleges and Training Schools nationwide, covering theoretical and practical aspects of policing.
In conclusion, the Nigerian Police emphasizes the importance of relying on official channels for accurate information and urges applicants to be vigilant against fraudsters seeking personal information or payments.
