What is the process for the recruitment of Special Police Officers in Cyprus?
The Cyprus Police has published a Preliminary List in the Official Gazette marking the start of Special Police Officers recruitment. Candidates were evaluated on criteria including a Physical Fitness Test. The list includes 451 successful candidates with an eight-day objection window for placement contests. A Final List, considering objections, sets the recruitment priority order.
Overview of Recruitment Process
The Cyprus Police has recently completed a critical phase in the recruitment of Special Police Officers, as delineated in announcement number 5549/779. This announcement was initially published in the Official Gazette of the Republic on 07/07/2023, marking the start of the application process.
Evaluation and Preliminary List Creation
An Evaluation Committee was tasked with reviewing the submissions. They had the challenging job of meticulously going through all 831 applications. Their review was based on several recruitment criteria, including the results of the Physical Fitness Test.
After a thorough examination, the committee compiled the Preliminary List. This important document was made available to the public via publication in the Official Gazette of the Republic. It serves a dual purpose of maintaining transparency by providing individual scoring for each candidate and detailing the ranking methodology. In instances where candidates had the same score, the tie-breaker considered the age of the applicants, with preference given to the older candidate.
Inclusion of Candidates
The Preliminary List is comprehensive. It includes the names of the 451 candidates who have successfully met the recruitment criteria thus far (this does not include medical certificates at this stage). Additionally, the list is inclusive of those who either failed to meet the set criteria or were absent for, or did not pass, the Physical Fitness Test. These applicants are noted in the subsequent positions, starting from serial number 452 up to 831.
Rights and Objections Process
In adherence to fair and transparent procedures, each applicant has been granted the right to contest their placement on the Preliminary List. For any objections to be considered, they must be formally submitted within an eight-day window, starting from the publication date of the List. The last day to file objections is set for Friday, 24/11/2023, by 14:00. Candidates can submit these in person or via the designated facsimile number at the Recruitment Office located within the Cyprus Police Academy.
Addressing Objections and Finalizing Recruitment
Once the objection period concludes, an Objections Committee is responsible for reviewing each case. This committee’s decisions will lead to the formation of the Final List. This definitive list will not only reflect the resolutions of any challenges but also set forth the order of priority for the recruitment of Special Police Officers. As with the Preliminary List, the Final List will be made public through the Official Gazette of the Republic, ensuring transparency until the final stages of the recruitment process.
