     The Hong Kong Police Force today (April 6) held the Police Recruitment Day (Spring) at the Police Headquarters to recruit Probationary Inspectors, Recruit Police Constables and Police Constables (Auxiliary).

     A total of 2,010 applications were received in this recruitment exercise, among which 800 were for Probationary Inspector, 1,113 were for Recruit Police Constable, and 97 were for Police Constable (Auxiliary). Applicants included graduates of local and overseas tertiary institutions, working people and ethnic minorities.

     The Police Recruitment Day provides one-stop service to applicants, including initial screening and scheduling of written examination for Probationary Inspector candidates; initial screening and group interview for Recruit Police Constable candidates; and initial screening and seminar for Police Constable (Auxiliary) candidates, which helps shorten the time required for the recruitment process. Successful applicants for the posts of Police Recruit Constable and Probationary Inspector will undergo training at the Hong Kong Police College in May and June at the earliest respectively.

     In the financial year 2019-20, the Force aims to recruit 1,815 police officers, comprising 195 Probationary Inspectors and 1,620 Recruit Police Constables. The Auxiliary Police Force aims to recruit 320 Police Constables (Auxiliary).

     The Force has been adopting a proactive recruitment strategy to attract high calibre candidates who possess the required competencies to serve. Six Volunteer Secondary Duty Cadres including the Technology Crime Initial Response Cadre, Force Search Unit, Police Negotiation Cadre, Force Escort Group, Force Rope Access Cadre and Briefing Support Unit were arranged to introduce their duties and equipment to candidates in the Recruitment Day. In addition, the latest episode of “Madam’s Classroom” series had been launched, introducing the preparations that candidates could make for the Police Inspector Extended Interview.

     The Force accepts job applications year-round. Persons who are interested in applying for Probationary Inspector, Recruit Police Constable or Police Constable (Auxiliary) can complete the application form at the Police website or mail the completed form to the Police Recruitment Division.
