The Police Service Commission (PSC) in Benin said at the weekend that over 90% of aspiring police officers did not achieve a score of 30% in the country’s police recruitment exams.
Austin Braimoh, the Police Service Commission’s (PSC) Commissioner representing the Mass Media and the South-South Zone, made the revelation at a one-day town hall meeting organized by the Commission and the Edo State Police Command.
The purpose of the town hall meeting, he said, is to improve the relationship between the police and the public, as well as to inform the public about the ongoing recruitment process.
“The Commission has the responsibility of informing the public about the current recruitment exercise and improving citizen-police relationships for effective policing,” Braimoh said.
“If your right is violated by a serving police officer, you no longer need to go to the National Human Rights Commission; instead, you go straight to the Police Service Commission; you no longer need a third party.”
“One of the challenges the Commission is facing today is that for a long time, those applying for recruitment into the force have been academically challenged, with over 90% of applicants failing to score at least 30% on the recruitment exams.”
“So you can imagine the type of police officers who will be presented to the public in this situation.”
Mr Philip Ogbadu, the Edo State Commissioner of Police, also spoke, bemoaning the lack of interest among Edo residents, particularly males, in joining the police force.
He described the trend as “dangerous,” noting that only females appear to be interested in becoming police officers.
