City scouts for talents for police force in high schools
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta administration has signed an agreement with the Jakarta Police that will allow the recruitment of police cadets from a pool of candidates still attending high school.
Jakarta Governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat said the program was aimed at scouting for good quality candidates for the force.
"We need to prepare from an early stage young people who want to be police officers. We expect that with this program, police personnel in the future could be more professional," Djarot said as quoted by tempo.co.
Djarot also said the procedure could help eliminate nepotism, which had long marred recruitment practices at the National Police.
The Jakarta governor said that students joining the early recruitment program would get physical training, on top of character building exercises.
Djarot and Jakarta Deputy Police chief Brig. Gen. Suntana signed the deal on Wednesday in a ceremony at City Hall.
In late August, the Jakarta Police started a program to train pak ogah (unlicensed traffic attendants) so that they could help police manage traffic in the capital.
