The Royal Solomon Island Police Force (RSIPF) will begin the second recruit course for this year on 23 August 2021 at the RSIPF Academy, Rove Police Headquarters in Honiara.
There will be a total of 70 recruits – 47 male and 23 female. The 70 recruits were selected from the nine provinces of Solomon Islands after going through the application process and selection criteria.
Official commencement of the course requires all candidates to attend an induction and briefing session at Rove Police Headquarter, 9am on Saturday 21 August 2021. Failure to do so may result in your place being offered to a reserved candidate.
It is a requirement that you must produce your police clearance document, bank account number and those already have National Provident Fund (NPF) number to bring it with them before collecting your offer letter at the Police Human Resource Office at Rove.
Commissioner of Police, Mostyn Mangau says, “The RSIPF Recruit Program is designed to produce constables with a high level of knowledge, professionalism and integrity.”
Commissioner Mangau explains, “The recruitment process tried to take recruits from all the provinces and of cause women. I am pleased to see that 23 of the 70 recruits are female. The important point I want to make here is that the recruits were accepted after meeting the recruitment criteria.”
“The training package is for 26 weeks delivered by Police Academy staff, specialist instructors and visiting external agencies. The program has been tailored to produce professional, knowledgeable and well-disciplined police officers.”
Recruits will also take part in a demanding physical fitness regime designed to test them and inspire teamwork.
The recruit package, which has been up-dated, reflects not only the laws of the Solomon Islands but also how police officers can work with the community to continue building confidence in the RSIPF for a safe, peaceful and prosperous Solomon Islands.
“Recruits will be required to give 100 percent commitment and fully complete the course. It is not an easy course. I make no apology for this as not only myself but the community expect a high level of commitment and integrity from the recruits after they graduate and join other members of the RSIPF,” says Commissioner Mangau.
