POLICE have changed the fingerprints vetting process.

In a statement, Criminal Investigation Department spokesperson, Detective Inspector Portia Chinho, said the process will now take, at least, seven days.

In the past it used to take about three days.

“The police have put in place stringent fingerprint vetting measures to curb potential unscrupulous elements who might want to take advantage of the system,”  said Det Insp Chinho.

“Applicants should have their fingerprints taken at police stations.

“Please take note that the fingerprint recording by the Zimbabwe Republic Police is a free service but one should bring his or her own fingerprint forms.

“Those outside Zimbabwe can have the fingerprints recorded at any police station in the countries they reside.

“The fingerprints should then be submitted at Criminal Investigation Department (CID) headquarters.

“Members of the public outside Harare may send the fingerprint forms through courier services, well addressed with a paid-up return package.” 

Those outside Zimbabwe may be able to pay for the clearance through the bank account number which is provided upon request.

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police does not condone corruption by anyone including police officers within its rank and file. 

“The public should report any corrupt activities at the ZRP Anti-Corruption Unit which is at Corner Josiah Chinamano and 9th Avenue, Harare,” said Det Insp Chinho.
