Police Recruitment Form: Stampede at Somanya GCB as Network Goes Down

Hundreds of prospective recruits continue besieging the premises of GCB branch at Somanya on Monday and Tuesday after the Ghana Police Service opened its recruitment process through the sale of electronic vouchers.

Very early in Monday and Tuesday mornings, long snaking queues were formed at the front view of the bank  as some unemployed youth struggled to get the pins, the key to open the online application forms.

Meanwhile, the bank’s network service was down making it difficult for the possible recruits to have access to the voucher, a situation which has left many of the people frustrated.

The branch Manager of the bank who spoke to ritefmonline.org admit there is difficulty accessing the internet for the sale of the voucher, but has assured, everybody will be served before the deadline, 15th December, 2017, since measures were put in place.

According to the Manager, details of particulars including the Ghc 50.00 voucher fee were taken for the people to return to their various destinations. The form he said the bank will process anytime the network problem is normalized. Individuals will be called for their pin upon the bank’s completion.

GCB Bank is the only bank responsible for the sale of the vouchers, which are to be used to complete the recruitment registration process online.

In the past, a number of people were duped in scams to get them recruited into the Police Service

It was for that reason that the Police Service, last year, decided to introduce electronic means to receive applications as part of efforts to reduce the involvement of intermediaries.

The registration vouchers contain special codes that enable each applicant to access the registration forms on the website of the Ghana Police Service.

Some people whom ritefmonline.org reporter Kodwo Boafo spoke to expressed their impatient to get the network back.

Some are of the suspicion that the bank is transacting discriminatorily over the voucher sales process.

“I came yesterday and was told the network was down so I should go and return this morning. I came here early this morning before some people but were served. I don’t know what is happening?” Teye Andrews said.

Some frustrated persons suggested that, the sales of the police recruitment form should be made possible through the post offices as it used to be.
