Police Recruitment Event In The Hawke’s Bay

Have you considered a career with the New Zealand Police?

Hawke’s Bay Police are hosting a recruitment day on Saturday, 12 November, and invite anyone interested in joining the NZ Police whānua, including those in neighbouring provinces, to come along.

“This is a golden opportunity for anyone interested in making Aotearoa New Zealand a better and safer place,” says Sergeant Greg Macklow.

“Joining the Police will give you that opportunity.”

There will be representatives from many of the 30 major workgroups within Police, including public safety staff (frontline), road policing, detectives, forensics, and specialist tactical groups - such as dog teams. Those who support constabulary positions, such as prisoner escorts, front-counter and administration staff will also be present.

There are also a number of presentations planned to showcase the various workgroups, and some hands-on activities such as fingerprinting, virtual cop, and fitness.

There will be staff available to chat to, ranging from our newest constables to those who have given over 40 years to policing.

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.
