Join the Team
It takes a variety of talents, backgrounds, experience and personalities to create a strong, cohesive team.
Explore the variety of pathways you can take to become part of the WA Police Force.
If you are looking to begin a career in policing you will undergo 28-weeks of paid training. You will then learn on the job for 18-months to build the foundational skills of a Police Officer.
It's not too late to reignite your career. If you have been a Police Officer within the last five years and have completed your probationary service, apply now to rejoin.
If you are currently a Police Officer in another Australian state or New Zealand, opportunities are available. We value and recognise your skills and experience, enabling you to continue your policing career in WA.
Come and join the good life in Western Australia. If you're keen to move to Western Australia and are a current Police Officer with three or more years’ experience from a compatible jurisdiction we want to hear from you.
Police Auxiliary Officers support and help Police Officers. You'll receive comprehensive paid training to learn skills and requirements of the job.
As a Cadet, you'll dip your toe into the world of policing. During this program you'll gain real insights and experience into life with the WA Police Force, all while being mentored and supported along the way.
Police Officers, unlike Cadets, have powers to make arrests and are permitted to carry weapons. Cadets primarily assist Police Officers in their day-to-day duties. Joining the Cadet Program can be the start of your policing journey, providing invaluable insights and experience.
