Recruitment campaign Dutch Caribbean Police Force delivers 200 applicants

The Dutch Caribbean Police Force (KPCN) has in recent weeks held a
recruitment campaign for aspiring police officers. The Force was looking for
candidates for the two-year training for police officer which starts in
October. With the theme: “Do you have the guts? We have the job!”
candidates were called upon to apply on Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba. On
all three islands information sessions were held, which were well attended,
also from interested parties from the surrounding islands/countries and by
the parents and relations of the interested parties. The atmosphere at these
sessions was good. KPCN is very happy with the enthusiasm they encountered
at these meetings.

The application deadline is since expired and there have been more than 200
reactions from interested persons from Saba, St. Eustatius and Bonaire and
the neighboring islands. KPCN is pleased with the large number of reactions.
This indicates that many people on the islands feel involved in the work of
the police and safety of our islands in general.


Within KPCN a committee specially designated for this will now start working
work on the letter selection. Afterwards the first interviews will take
place. With the candidates coming out of the first round of talks, various
tests and examinations such as the sports test, the language test, the
reliability test and the medical examination will then take place.
Applicants will receive notice within two weeks whether or not they have
past the first selection round, the letter selection.
