Mr Hamilton said: "We know from our previous campaigns that people from across Northern Ireland want to join the Police Service. To ensure that potential candidates have all the information they need we are hosting three familiarisation events taking place on 10th October in Belfast, Londonderry and Omagh. I would encourage anyone who has ever thought about a career in policing to come along to one of the events."

The closing date for applications for phase three is Friday 23 October.
