A career in policing is both highly challenging and extremely rewarding. If you think you have what it takes and you meet the eligibility criteria to join SA Police, then the next step is submitting your application.
On our application resources page, we outline the forms and documents you’ll need to complete your application and instructions on how to apply to become a police officer, protective security officer or community constable . Our quick self-assessment checklist can help you confirm your eligibility.
If you’re still unsure and want more information about our recruitment process, why not attend one of our pre-application information seminars?
We know that policing isn’t for everyone, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for you at SA Police. Whatever your background and experience, you could be a valuable addition to our team.
