Police officers

Police officers perform duties that are diverse, stimulating and challenging.

Police officers perform an important front line role within Victoria Police. The majority of Victoria Police members work as General Duties police officers who:

  • are always first on the scene at any reportable crime or public need
  • provide their service to the community 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

While the role and duties of a police officer are challenging, they are also rewarding. As a police officer you will make a difference to the Victorian community every day.
