Your questions answered

How is regional policing different to metropolitan areas?

As a Police Officer in a country town, you will handle nearly all aspects of policing which will enable you to gain a great deal of experience in a variety of roles. 

Like most frontline positions, you will often be amongst the first to attend crime scenes and traffic crashes and respond to public calls for help. You will also become an integral asset to the community by being actively involved with places like schools to tackle crime and safety.

If I need to relocate, will my accommodation and expenses be covered?

When working in regional locations, there are many additional financial benefits. These benefits will be based on the regional location but can include relocation costs and storage, free/subsidised housing, air-conditioning subsidy, district allowance (one-off payment), and include additional leave and remote community leave.
