Police Officers

The people of Victoria rely on police to protect life and property, detect and apprehend offenders, and help those in need of assistance.

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

You will be paid from day one of your 31-week training phase at the Victoria Police Academy. After graduating you will be deployed as a General Duties Police Officer to a police station anywhere in Victoria.

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

The majority of Victoria Police members work as General Duties Police Officers but there are also many specialist roles that require further training once you've completed 2 to 4 years of general duties operational experience.
