Number of Police Recruits Falling

HR

This year, only 470 young people applied to the two-year technical schools for police officers, although this number was over 3,000 a few years ago, according to hrportal.hu.

Roughly 1,000 began the other route into the force, the 10-month patrol training period.

Far fewer people will complete that, as some change their minds or do not meet the eligibility criteria, so only about 800 police officers graduate from secondary schools every year, the report notes.

Many of these young people are laid off or resign due to heavy workloads or low wages.

According to the data, 779 people graduated from technical school and patrol training in 2021 and 732 in 2022.
