In a statement, Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo warned those who are asked by criminals to take application letters to unknown offices not to do so as they risk being attacked.

She has reiterated that the Zambia police has not carried any advertisement on recruitment hence all adverts and information circulating on social media about recruitment in the police service is fake and should be treated as such.

Katongo advised members of the public to wait for advertisements which are usually placed in traditional media (Print, Television and Radio) with a clear guide on how applications should be submitted.
