Q and A


Can HIV positive people join the police in South Africa?


Thank you for your question.

As i-Base is in the UK, I sent an email request to the SAPS from the link on their website.

The direct email is: marketing@saps.gov.za

I had a reply back saying that HIV positive people can join the police force.

So long as you are mentally and physically fit, it is fine to be HIV positive.

A lot of serving police officers are likely to be HIV positive.
If you are worried about this, perhaps email or call the employment section and ask. You do not need to give your name when you do this or you can say you are calling for a friend.
