Information seminars

Recruiting now
SA Police is currently recruiting police officers and protective security officers. Watch our latest recruiting video

While we’ve postponed our regular face-to-face seminars for would-be applicants, we continue to recruit both men and women who yearn to make a positive contribution in their community either as a police officer or as a protective security officer. If you’re ready to take the next step towards your policing career, you can learn more via this new video, covering off on many of the topics ordinarily covered in our face-to-face seminars.

PLEASE NOTE:  Our current face-to-face seminars have been postponed to a future date due to the concerns relating to the COVID-19 virus.  SAPOL has a duty of care to all members of the community in relation to their health and safety so therefore we are taking precautionary measures by postponing seminars.

Whether you’ve made the decision to apply for SA Police or you’re still on the fence, our pre-application information seminars provide you with all the information you need to help you prepare for your application.

The seminars cover information for police officers as well as protective security officers. Each session usually covers:

  • the requirements and correct submission of application forms
  • the SAPOL Recruitment Test (Tafe SA)
  • our evaluation and testing processes
  • the panel interview
  • our physical testing, including required standards and information on how to prepare yourself
  • computer competencies required, including Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010.

You can also hear from serving police officers about their experiences at the academy and on the job.

Information seminars normally take place at our Police Headquarters (100 Angas St, Adelaide) and run for approximately two hours, from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm.

From time to time we also run seminars tailored specifically for women and young people interested in joining SA Police. These sessions focus on the application and recruitment process, and support services available. Please contact our Recruiting Section for more information on these seminars and upcoming dates.

Places are limited. Please fill out the registration form to book your attendance.

Please bring a form of photo ID (for example, your driver’s licence) with you on the day and arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to check in.
