he Rivers State Police Command has fixed January 8, 2023, as commencement date for screening of interested applicants in its ongoing recruitment.

She said the screening would be held at the Alfred Diete-Spiff Civic Centre at Moscow Road in Port Harcourt from January 8 – 29, 2024.

“This is to inform the general public, especially all indigenes of Rivers, who applied for ongoing recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) that screening will be held from Jan. 8 to Jan. 29,” she said.

“Applicants are expected to come with the required documents for the physical/credential screening exercise at the Alfred Diete-Spiff Civic Centre, Moscow Road.

“The required documents are evidence of physical/mental fitness from a government-recognised medical hospital and evidence of good character from each village/district head of applicants,” she added.

Iringe-Koko said candidates should also come with original and duplicate copies of their certificate of origin, duly signed by the chairman or secretary of their local government areas.


“Other documents include original and duplicate copies of national identity card/slip and original and duplicate copies of birth certificate or declaration of age.

“Applicants are also expected to come along with the printout of their application form; duly completed guarantor’s form and their invitation slip.

“Candidates should also present recent passport photographs and two white flat files as well as expected to wear clean white T-shirts and shorts for the exercise,” she added.

The police image maker advised candidates to arrive at the venue of the screening exercise no later than 8am daily during the recruitment.

She said the Commissioner of Police, CP Olatunji Disu, had assured that all statutory entry requirements as clearly stated in the Police Acts and Regulations would be followed accordingly.
