Policing is a unique profession that demands a high degree of physical and mental fitness to manage the often testing nature of the job.
Tasmania Police needs to ensure that, as an organisation, it is not going to place an applicant at an undue risk of harm or aggravation of any pre-exiting condition (either physical or mental) by employing them as a police officer. Additionally, applicants need to display that their physical and mental abilities meet the inherent requirements to be a police officer.
It is as a result of these requirements that the following standards for Tasmania Police applicants have been developed. It is incumbent upon applicants to disclose all medical conditions and symptoms to ensure that a full assessment can be made about their medical suitability to undertake the role of a police officer.
