The list of candidates has been released, according to PSC spokeswoman Ikechukwu Ani.
According to him, the Police Recruitment Board reported to the commission on Tuesday, June 4, 2024. The General Duty recruitment process was successful in accepting 9,000 candidates, while the Specialists cadre saw the recruitment of 1,000 candidates.

The commission sought advice from the Nigerian Police Force, the National Assembly, and the Federal Character Commission, among other relevant parties, to provide a level playing field in the recruitment process. It was a fair system that distributed the winners evenly throughout the 774 LGAs in the nation.

In order to oversee the recruitment process and report back to the commission, the commission established a recruitment board.

This board consisted of representatives from various stakeholder groups, including the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), the Ministry of Police Affairs, the Federal Character Commission, police colleges, and the Police Trust Fund (PTF).

Paid adverts in multiple national media outlets asked interested youths in Nigeria to apply online for consideration in the succeeding rounds of the program. All interested parties were given six weeks (from October 15, 2023, to November 26, 2023) to complete the online application process in accordance with the Federal Character requirements.

“We received 609,886 applications in total. Out of those, 416,323 met the advertised requirements and were shortlisted for the second exercise stage, which involved physical and document screening.”From Monday, January 8, 2024, until Monday, January 8, 2024, the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) hosted this stage.

A total of 171,956 candidates were ultimately selected for the Computer-based Tests (CBT) administered by the renowned Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) after the commission had completed the physical and credentials screening.
