Police Officer Registration 2023 PCDA/DHEP
Change the story. Be a part of the future of policing.
Being a police officer with #teamnp is a unique career filled with reward and challenge. No two days on the front line are the same, and it will be your job to protect the vulnerable, support victims or crime and to build trust and forge valuable relationships with the diverse communities you serve.
We are looking to recruit individuals who live and work by our values, and those who will be committed to our purpose to “keep people safe and fight crime”. This is a career where you can truly make a difference and change people’s lives every day.
