Nigerian Police Recruitment: Shortlisting of Successful Applicants Updates Page

You’re on the right page if you want to know if the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) list of successful applicants had been released. You will read the latest news about the recruitment, list of names and some misinformation will be addressed.

The Nigerian police constables recruitment was closed on January 11, 2019, and the commission promised all the lucky applicants will be contacted in due course.

However, there had been a rumour that the final police list was out.

This is nothing but speculation and misleading information.

I had earlier posted what the Nigerian Police service commission said immediately after the form closed.

I also let you know when the commission said they planned to recruit 30,000 police officers this time and in the future recruitment.

I’ve got my hands on the number of applicants state by state which I shared to prepare you for what to come after.

When is the List Coming Out?

Having said that the list wasn’t out yet, you would want to know when to expect it.

The answer is anytime sooner.

Checking the information on the official recruitment page,, they will definitely release the long awaited list anytime sooner.

Below is the latest official update.

Nigerian Police Official Update On How and When the List Will be Released
The 2018/2019 Submission of Applications for Recruitment as Police Constables (Recruits) has ended. The Police Service Commission is now reviewing all submitted applications so as to shortlist candidates for the next stage of the Recruitment Process. Shortlisted Candidates shall be contacted soon.

Don't be misguided. The commission has said that candidates will be contacted sooner. Hence, I advise you to keep checking your email for a possible message from them when the list is out.

In other words, the list may not be pasted on the recruitment portal or online. Each applicant may be sent an email congratulatory message which will be printed and presented at the screening and interview venues.

After Shortlisting What Next?

The full explanation to the next stages is well discussed in my post, “4 Stage Next After Obtaining Nigerian Police Force (NPF) Form

In brief, below are the next stages coming after the list of the successful applicant is made available online.
  • Print all Evidence of Registration
  • Sign Your Guarantor Form
  • State Screening  
  • Final Selection, Medical Test and Posting to Training School
