Flexibility and work/life balance
We’re looking for team players with strong co-ordination, people skills and conflict resolution to join the Victoria Police family. There are so many opportunities for hard-working and reliable people. Careers range from crime scene and victim-liaison officers to police divers and bomb-disposal specialists.
You bring the passion and we’ll provide the training.
All police officers are required to undertake a minimum of 2 to 4 years of general duties policing, working at police stations. This is where you’ll learn the foundation skills for a career in policing. General duties shifts are 8 hours in length and can be day, afternoon or night shifts. Shift work can have many benefits that office hours don’t – such as being able to drop the kids at school, pursue a hobby or undertake part-time studies.
From there, the options are as diverse as you are. You can manage teams, rise up the ranks, mentor others and learn specialist skills as part of areas like the Critical Incident Response Team, Highway Patrol, State Event Planning Unit and Transit Safety Division.
We offer job security and a range of great perks. You can expect to earn upwards of $70,000 in your first year, receive 9 weeks’ leave as well as other generous entitlements. Best of all is the chance to develop long-lasting friendships, while making a real difference to your community.
