Careers with the Police Force

For students interested in a career with Victoria Police as a Police Officer or PSO, please find some helpful information below:

Not every 18 year old will be ready to apply but those who are gathering life experience whilst they are in high school will be more competitive throughout the recruitment process.

For example:
  • Part-time work experience in a customer service environment - provides exposure to people from diverse backgrounds and develops communication, teamwork and conflict resolution skills. For example, working at McDonalds one day a week.
  • Volunteer experience - develops a sense of community-mindedness and communication skills. For example, working at the local surf lifesaving club or community centre.
  • Sporting club experience - develops teamwork, communication and leadership skills, not to mention the healthy level of fitness that is a requirement of the role.
  • Overseas travel - provides exposure to other cultures, religions and languages and fosters a sense of independence and assertiveness.
