Information Session – Police Officer role

High schools, TAFEs and universities

 We often get asked by our younger applicants how they can prepare to apply. There are no specific subject selections we require, but any subjects that develop communication skills and physical fitness are helpful. Communications skills (verbal and written) are vital for policing roles.

The following suggestions will help develop the life experience we expect to see in our applicants:

  1. Part-time work experience in a customer service environment – provides exposure to all walks of life and develops communication, teamwork and conflict resolution skills, for example working at McDonalds one day a week.
  2. Volunteer experience – develops community mindedness and communication skills, for example working at the local surf life-saving club or community centre.
  3. Sporting club experience – develops teamwork, communication, leadership skills and a healthy level of fitness which is required for the job.
