The National Commissioner of the South African Police Service (SAPS), General Riah Phiyega, has announced that a re-enlistment process during the 2015/2016 financial year.
This decision was taken after a thorough analysis of the loss of personnel from the SAPS during the previous financial year was undertaken.
The re-enlistment process will be relevant to the 2015/2016 financial year only and we are looking to re-employ former members and appoint them into the ranks of constable, sergeant, warrant officer and lieutenant.
The areas where we would particularly re-enlist employees are in the Detective Service and the Visible Policing environments.
The SAPS will place advertisements regarding this process in South African Sunday newspapers within the next two weeks.
The information will also be posted on the SAPS website www.saps.gov.za under the “Careers” heading when the advertisements are published.
“During this re-enlistment process, we will welcome applications from former members of all ranks who meet the prescribed criteria which will be advertised,” said General Phiyega.
“However, those applicants must realise that they will be appointed at a rank level between constable and lieutenant, no higher than lieutenant, irrespective of the rank they held when leaving the SAPS,” she added.
The appointments will be guided by vacant funded posts within the SAPS.
