Tshwane metro police condemned the circulation of fake trainee posts

Members of the public are advised not to fall for this fake advertisement and to refrain from responding to these applications, no matter how convincing they may appear.

Tshwane metro police condemned the circulation of false advertising for trainee posts at their department.
TMPD has noticed there are application forms making rounds on social media that advertise TMPD trainee posts for 2022, said Tshwane metro police spokesperson Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba.

“We would like to emphasise that we have not advertised any TMPD trainee posts, therefore, the link for the application forms with TMPD pictures that are circulating on social media is fake.”

“When TMPD trainee posts are available they will be advertised through proper channels, such as in newspapers, on the City of Tshwane website and at all TMPD regional offices,” Mahamba said in a statement.

“The TMPD will never ask applicants to pay any money when they apply for posts,” Mahamba said.

Members of the public are urged to report any criminal activity to the TMPD at 012 358 7095/6.
