Victoria Police Officer



  • Earn $70,000 in your first year
  • Nine weeks’ leave a year
  • Be paid from Day 1 of training
  • Job security and industry-leading superannuation
  • Opportunities to specialise in diverse areas
  • Flexibility and work/life balance

Use your coordination, planning and people skills as a force for good and join Victoria Police. From detectives and victim-liaison officers to state events coordinators and bomb disposal specialists – a career with Victoria Police offers so many opportunities for reliable, adaptable people.


We’ll provide full training through the Academy that will prepare you for all situations.  After graduation, you’ll work with a partner who will always have your back.


All police officers are required to undertake a minimum of 2 to 4 years of general duties policing working at police stations. This is where officers learn the foundation skills for their career in policing. General duties shifts are 8 hours in length and can be day, afternoon or night shifts. Shift work can have many benefits that office hours don’t – such as being able to drop the kids at school, pursue a hobby or undertake part-time studies.


From there, the options are as diverse as you are. You can manage teams, rise up the ranks, mentor others and learn specialist skills as part of areas like the State Event Planning Unit, Critical Incident Response Team, Prosecutions and Criminal Investigation Units.


We offer job security and a range of great perks. You can expect to earn upwards of $70,000 in your first year, receive 9 weeks’ leave as well as other generous entitlements. Best of all is the chance to develop long-lasting friendships, while making a real difference to your community.


Victoria Police is recruiting over 3000 police officers by 2020. If you have ever considered a career with Victoria Police, there is no better time to apply than now!

To be eligible to apply, you will need:

  • 18+ with VCE/ Senior VCAL or equivalent (not required if over 21 years of age)
