PNG Police Recruitment 2023 Selection and Training Updates

PNG Police Recruitment 2023: PNG Insight saw nearly 50,000 page views on this page at the closing date, 20th January 2023. The recruiting agent (PNG Job Seek) will have a lot of work to do when shortlisting the potential candidates for interviews.

If you have applied, here is what is likely to happen during the next stage leading up to training.

Have you applied for the RPNGC PNG Police Recruitment 2023? Ger the PNG Police Recruitment 2023 Selection and Training Updates


PNG Police Recruitment 2023, what next? 

So, you applied for the PNG Police Recruitment 2023, what's next? The recruiting agent will screen the applications sent online. It's part of the recruitment process. But with 30,000 applications and only 560 spots, it is a gigantic screening task.

Understandably, not everyone will receive a response except for those that are shortlisted for the 500 Police Trainees and 60 Cadet Officer spots. 

If you get a response, you should be proud of yourself.

Here are the stages of an organisation's recruitment process:
  • Stage 1 - You submit the application - DONE
  • Stage 2 - You'll be invited for a formal interview.
  • Stage 3 - Candidates interview
  • Stage 4 - Candidates informed of the outcome of the interview
  • Stage 6 - Medicals, registration & admission
  • Stage 7 - Training commences.
Important: Note that this is not the formal recruitment process for the PNG Police Recruitment 2023. It is the standard recruitment process that many organisations use during recruitment and training. 

PNG Job Seek and Police Training Offices will let you know the outcome of the recruitment and details of the 2023 police training, respectively.

How long does police recruitment take?

The police recruitment for this year ended on Friday the 20th of January 2023 which is the first step in the recruitment process. If you think about it, the first stage took about 5 weeks.

Next, the recruutment agent or police trainers will screen the applications and shortlist the potential candidates for interview. 

Then,  the actual interview takes place. That means that either PNG Job Seek or Police, (whoever does the selection) will go through 30,000 applications. It is likely to take longer than anticipated.

So, be patient!

In hindsight, the RPNGC does the right thing by offloading the recruitment to the agent, because they will do a good job identifying the 560 final police trainees. Also, they are likely to keep to the deadline.

Meanwhile, the RPNG and PNG Job Seek have NOT indicated anything about the dates for interviews and training yet. Watch this space.

Police in PNG lack Manpower

No recruitment for Police trainees happened in 2020. In 2021, the RPNGC trained some reserve police personnels to add to the manpower during the elections. 

The then Police Minister Bryan Kramer said in 2020 that PNG currently has a total of 7,200 police officers. This number serves the whole country.

There is a greater need to empower the police force, including the Corrections Services (CIS) and PNG Defence Force (PNGDF). (Check the links for more details). 

More so, there is need for morally upstanding policemen and policewomen. 

In recent months, the PNG police and defence forces command released promising training and recruitment updates. There's emphasis on long term training and discipline.


See the police's new training modules that the police commissioner alluded to below.

2023 Police Training and New Syllabus

In a Post Courier report on the 24th of July 2022, the commissioner said they are upgrading the police training syllabus to 18 months (from 6 months). This is a massive improvement.

In 2023 and onwards, the new police recruits will undergo 

  • 6 months of basic policing, law and order theory at Bomana Police College; and 
  • 12 months of practicum at the police stations assigned to them.

At the police stations, the new recruits will:

  • learn about the operations of stations,
  • perform shifts,
  • learn the basics of prosecutions and investigations.
The main area of the 12 months practicum will focus on installing discipline in the new trainees. And also, educate them on the basics of applied  prosecutions, investigation of criminals and traffic rules & engagements.
