Are there any PO's out there who are applying to NZ Police in latest 'drive'.
Would be interested to talk whilst all is ongoing and in next few months ...

Am serving with D and C constabulary myself...

Any news yet? I am confused by the emails as it seems to imply most will be sent online testing - but haven't heard anything as of today at 2.30pm!

From what I gleaned, they were to reply today to say if got through first stage, then would receive an e-mail from a company (genisys) who carry out online testing. Beware when you open the e-mail the test begins and you cannot stop it :scared:

You guys and gelz that are already in the plod do you have to still do the 5 month training in Welly or is that waived any?

Im ex-military and if (and its a big if) I ended up anywhere near Welly I would seriously considered joining the NZ police. I dont fancy moving my familiy 12000 miles and then spending 5 months away doing a training course at the other end of NZ than I want to settle in.

Cheers

If you're already in the 'job' u can join via UK recruitment drive, only need to go to Welly for abt 8/10 weeks to complete conversion course. They're actually over in the UK recruiting now.

Hi Chris Im not. Im the only one out of my gang who isnt

I was just curious about the course. If I join I would have to do the full 26 week course in Welly. Bit much for the wife and kids to put up woth after dragging them 12000 miles. Maybe after we have been there a while.

Take care

Jack

I have seen the TV police recruitment advert on NZ TV. They are saying join the police and get better work stories. Makes me wonder how they feel about condfidentiality.
