You will be required to attend formal induction training at Police HQ, Penrith. This is a combination of attendance on weekdays and weekends for training in legislation, first aid, police powers and procedures and one 5 day block of training Monday to Friday where you will undertake personal safety training. Currently this requires a commitment of 22 days within your initial 3 months service.
The course is designed so that you have two blocks of training to ensure that you have both a basic grounding in the aspects of police work before you carry out any operational duty.
You must complete all mandatory induction training before being deployed operationally.
There will also be ongoing training available to you on new legislation, conflict management and other key skills, which will also support you in your full-time employment and personal development.
