The 39-year-old mother of five has almost completed the Diploma of Policing Practice, which will make her eligible to realise her lifelong dream – to join the NSW Police Service.
It has meant spending time away from her children and husband, but that’s a sacrifice Mrs Tanti believes is worthwhile.
“All my family were in the police, but I’ll be the first female to join the service,” she said.
Mrs Tanti will be sharing her experiences as a policing student at the Police Career Day on Sunday 26 August at the Western Sydney Police Centre, Westmead.
The Career Day, which runs from 10am to 4pm, is a joint initiative of the NSW Police Service 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.
Two formal information sessions featuring current students, recent graduates and University and Police staff will be held at 10am and 1pm respectively. Speakers will discuss career options within the Police Service, health and lifestyle issues and the education program.
The Diploma of Policing Practice, offered by CSU, can be studied full-time on campus at the Goulburn Police College (formerly the Academy) or part-time by distance education, making it accessible to all prospective students.
Applications for the Diploma may be submitted at the Career Day, and anyone wishing to apply should bring original copies of documents such as birth certificates, results of prior study and references.
The Police Career Day is being held at the Western Sydney Police Centre, Building P, University of Western Sydney, Hawkesbury Road, Westmead.
