“In this regard, we wish to advise all applicants who chose DCI Headquarters for fingerprinting to log in to and book an appointment indicating the date and exact time that you will be attended to, ” said DCI.

“Only those with appointments and who arrive at the designated time will be allowed past the gate. Kindly bear with us as we strive to serve you during these challenging times.”

The services were suspended in March following the outbreak of Covid-19 in the country.

The primary purpose of the Good Conduct document is to validate that a person’s records in the police department are clean. It’s a requirement in the job market.
