New Zealand Police National News Release

Sourced from the betterworkstories.co.nz website

New Zealand Police (NZ Police) is currently in the early stage of a large recruitment drive and is offering people the chance to get their own rewarding work stories.

Through its enhanced recruitment activity (which features advertising on TV, radio and the internet) NZ Police aims to put an additional 1,000 police officers out on New Zealand streets by 2009.

What's on offer?

NZ Police can offer job seekers:

• a job like no other where every day is different - if challenge, diversity and a sense of purpose is what job seekers are seeking, they'll find it at NZ Police• a chance to really make a difference - what could be more satisfying than preventing and solving crime, as well as helping people when they need it most?

• paid training - new recruits earn an income of over $33,000 (per annum) while attending the Royal New Zealand Police College

• a good starting salary - graduates from the college (new probationary constables) earn over $45,000 per annum + other benefits

• continued education - NZ Police pays for its staff's tertiary studies if the study relates to their careers in the Police, which means they never need to stop learning•

chances to specialise - once employees have two years experience behind them there are plenty of options to choose from, including:

• community policing
• dog handling
• police photography
• youth education!
• armed offenders
• criminal investigation
• dive squad
• e-crime

What does it take?

To be a police officer people need to be community minded, fit, healthy, and bright enough to pass a range of tests.

NZ Police is seeking a diverse group of people from all walks of life so that it can be more reflective of the people it serves. In particular, NZ Police wants to employ more females and add more Asian, Maori and Pasifika people to its staff.

If you, or someone you know would like better work stories and would benefit from the challenge, diversity and fulfilment NZ Police can offer, more information can be found by visiting www.betterworkstories.co.nz or by calling 0800 NEWCOPS.
