Harare – The ZRP has announced a recruitment exercise for suitably qualified candidates to join the force as General Duty Constables.

 The successful 1000 candidates will undergo a two-year training program at the Mkushi (formerly Morris Depot) Police Training Academy, leading to a Diploma in Police Studies.

National ZRP spokesperson, Commissioner Paul Nyathi told The Midweek that they are targeting to recruit 1000 officers but refused to divulge the number of police officers in the country.

“We are targeting 1000 recruits, as for the number of total police officers in the country, unfortunately that one I cannot disclose for security reasons,” said the soft spoken veteran police officer.
