Tasmania Police use a rolling recruitment process which means your application is processed as soon as you apply. A trainee course is generally completed 8 weeks out from their commencement date, however the Tasmania Police recruitment process takes between 3–6 months so applicants need to consider submitting applications sooner rather than later.
