This is the second phase of the recruitment exercise, and we deem it necessary and appropriate to give you briefing of what is going to happen so that you will understand the process and be in a position to report accurately," he said.

He said recruitment into the Ghana Police Service is in many phases, which includes application, body selection and certificate verification, writing of exams and then undergoing training.
