“Newly passed 2018 matriculates [are] encouraged to apply. Applicants must be in possession of a light motor vehicle driver’s licence, however, 10 percent of the total allocation of trainees will be allowed without a driver’s licence,” said Hendricks, adding that applicants must be physically and mentally fit, undergo a psychological and integrity test and speak at least two of the official languages, of which one must be English.
“Candidates must take the oath of office, undergo training, not have any tattoo marks visible when wearing SAPS summer uniform, have no previous criminal convictions and or pending criminal, civil and disciplinary cases,” Hendricks said.
Applicants must be fit to carry a firearm and have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 30.
