SAPS Launches Recruitment Drive for 2024/2025

The South African Police Service (SAPS) has kicked off its highly anticipated recruitment process for the 2024/2025 intake.

In a bid to bolster the ranks of law enforcement, the SAPS aims to train and equip an additional 10,000 youth aged between 18 and 35 to serve as dedicated men and women in blue.

Deputy Minister of Police, Cassel Mathale, made the announcement during a recent National Career Expo held in Mdantsane, Eastern Cape. The event served as a platform for the SAPS to showcase and educate communities about the exciting career paths available within the organization.

One of the significant updates shared during the expo was the raising of the age limit for recruitment to 35 years old. This change provides more opportunities for individuals who may have previously been excluded due to age restrictions.

The SAPS has made the application process convenient by providing online application forms via their official website, www.saps.gov.za, under the police trainees section. Furthermore, physical application forms will be accessible at all police stations from today.

Currently, there are 9,000 trainees undergoing training at academies nationwide, with an additional 1,000 set to commence their training in January 2024. By the end of the 2023/2024 financial year, the SAPS will have trained a total of 10,000 recruits. The new batch for the 2024/2025 intake is scheduled to begin their training in April 2024.

Deputy Minister Mathale emphasized that the recruitment process aims to increase the presence of law enforcement personnel on the ground to protect and serve communities effectively. He explained, “We are embarking on this process to ensure we have more boots on the ground, thereby maximizing our efforts to combat crime.”

Echoing this sentiment, National Commissioner of the SAPS, General Fannie Masemola, stressed the importance of recruiting individuals who possess a genuine passion for public service. He stated, “We are inviting disciplined, upright, and passionate candidates who are ready to serve and protect their communities. With an increased presence, we aim to enhance our response to emerging crime trends and improve public safety.”

To be eligible for enlistment, applicants must meet certain criteria, which includes being a South African citizen, possessing a matric certificate (high school diploma), and having no criminal record.
