Police Security Officer Careers

Are you looking for the opportunity to contribute to the safety of your community?

Apply for a career as a police security officer with SA Police, and you could play a critical role in the security of our state.

Police security officers contribute to South Australia’s counter terrorism strategies and community safety. In this role, your primary function is to maintain the security of government facilities, public officials and the community through:

  • electronic surveillance by monitoring alarms and CCTV systems
  • mobile security patrols of government facilities
  • static guard services at government buildings
  • security of people, places and property
  • SAPOL custodial duties

This interesting and highly challenging role requires unique skills and abilities. You’ll need to meet SA Police’s eligibility criteria and undergo a rigorous recruitment process to determine whether you’re right for the job. If we offer you a role, you’ll attend our police academy, where you’ll receive training in law and procedure, communications and operational safety.

Once you finish at the academy, you’ll begin your duties as a police security officer and become a vital part of the network that continues to keep our community safe.

If you think you’re ready for the challenge of a career in SAPOL, we want to hear from you. Register for a Seminar or apply now and begin your journey to becoming a police security officer.
