Why is your application being cancelled? Are you “Doing the Right Thing?”

I want to share a quick tip with you to make sure that nobody else suffers the same consequences as a recent Victoria Police applicant has which has resulted in her application being cancelled.She thought she was doing the right thing at that time to help somebody out and it’s come back to bite her.

If you’ve ever considered taking responsibility for someone else’s demerit points and you’ve been good enough to put your name on the notice from the civic compliance saying “yes, I was actually driving at a time”, when you weren’t in order to take that person points for them, you’re risking having your application cancelled.

What you are doing is helping someone else to cheat the system and of course if you’re trying to cheat the system, your role in doing that is dishonest. The last thing you can afford to demonstrate to Victoria police if you want to join them is that at some level you are a dishonest person.

Your personal integrity is paramount!

So be very, very careful about what you do. If you’re considering sharing demerit points? – “Don’t go there!”

Kind regards,
