Our commitment to recruiting

Tasmania Police is committed to recruiting people who are able to provide effective policing services to the community of Tasmania. We know that in order for us, as an organisation to achieve this, we must be an equal opportunity employer and we must be representative of the community we serve.

Tasmania Police recognises that modern policing in a culturally diverse society requires police officers who reflect the gender, cultural, linguistic and regional diversity of our community.

Tasmania Police does not recruit for a particular academy intake, rather we operate a continuous recruitment process where applications are accepted throughout the year.

The entire recruiting process – from the time you submit an online application to the time you may be appointed as a Trainee Constable (if successful in the recruitment process), can depend on the following factors:

  • Your availability to participate in testing, assessment and interview
  • Our ability to facilitate testing, assessment and interview days
  • The time you take to lodge a recruit application
  • The time we take to process recruit applications
  • Conducting of checks with referees and if necessary interstate and overseas authorities
  • The availability of recruit positions at the Academy
  • The projected demand for police officers, and;
  • Unforeseen circumstances impacting on your application

Applications of a more complex nature can take longer to process.

We ask that you please be patient with us throughout the recruitment process.  We understand this is an exciting process to be a part of, but, we will be in touch with you when you progress to the next stage or we need more information from you.

Please also note that there are no specific number of intakes per year and the number of applicants successful in gaining a place on a recruit course will vary, depending on our staffing requirements.
