The Police administration has denied reports that it is undertaking a recruitment exercise.

A notice circulating on social media suggests that the service is undertaking recruitment exercises across the country.

Interested applicants were asked to purchase recruitment forms at ₵80 from post offices and apply online.

However, the Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Cephas Arthur, said the report is false and should be disregarded.

He said the information circulating on social is not from the police administration.

"The Police Administration's attention has been drawn to a story making the rounds on social media to the effect that the Police have advertise recruitment into the Service, and wishes to entreat the public to disregard it.

"1. The said advert is not coming from the Police.

"2. Police recruitment announcements are not jointly signed by the Vice President and the IGP.

"3. Police public notices are officially by the national dailies before any other medium.

"The public are hereby advised to disregard this advert in order not to fall victims to schemes of criminals", Supt Arthur said.

He urged anyone with information on the perpetrators of the scam to report to the nearest Police Station, or call Police emergency hotline MTN &Vodafone 18555 or 191 on all networks.
