What's inside your Police Recruitment applicant guide

Are you a good fit?

Police officers need certain skills and qualities to be able to perform this unique role. Communications skills, integrity and the ability to make sound decisions under pressure are just some of the requirements. But wait, there’s more!​

How is your profile looking?​

Every applicant applying to become a police will have a profile that recruitment will check. You need to ensure your profile ticks all the boxes. Life experience, employment history, community involvement, and more, all form part of your profile.

Are you too young or too old?

Is there a right age? If you’re concerned about your age and how it may affect your chances of becoming a police officer, we’ll take a look at what are the common issues with being too young or too old and what you can do about it!

Get a criminology degree?

Budding police officers often think there is a link between a law degree and improving the chances of a successful police application. You might be surprised when I explain why that’s not the case.

Preparation is the king

Like anything, preparation prevents poor performance and allows you to perform at your best. If you need some help with your police application, we’ll show you where to go to find it.
