This paper examines transparency and accountability perception among prospective police cadets of Indonesian Police Academy (Akpol) recruitment in 2012. The examination was based on survey data of 33 police candidates who passed the final test and 448 police candidates who have to have Akpol’s final test at Sukabumi, Bandung, in 2012. The survey also collects information from the Central Java Police officers for further information on the recruitment process. The survey results confirm that the recruitment process was transparent and accountable that represents the satisfaction of police candidates. However, some questions emerge in terms of the ranking process that might need more explanation since the ranking and cut off point for all candidates have never been publicly revealed. This paper simulates a simple additive weighting method that could be an alternative choice for constructing cut off points as well as a rank system in the police recruitment process.
