Anyone who has considered policing as a career, or who would like to know what it involves, should visit the Police Career Day this Sunday 3 November, 10am to 2pm, at the NSW Police College in Goulburn.
NSW Police Commissioner Ken Moroney will open the Police Career Day for prospective police officers.
Police Career Day is a joint initiative of the NSW Police and Charles Sturt University (CSU) and enables visitors to find out more about policing as a career and the recruit education program, the Diploma of Policing Practice.
A formal information session featuring current students, recent graduates and University and Police staff will be held from 10-11:30am. Speakers will explain career options within the NSW Police, health and lifestyle issues and the education program.
The Diploma of Policing Practice, offered by CSU, can be studied either full-time or part-time by distance education, making it accessible to all prospective students.
Applications for the Diploma may be submitted at the Police Career Day, and anyone wishing to apply should bring originals, as well as copies, of documents such as birth certificates, results of prior study and references.
The Police Career Day will be held at the NSW Police College, McDermott Drive, Goulburn, from 10am to 2pm.
