Received today:

The New Zealand Police are currently undertaking an Overseas Recruitment
Drive. This is open to current serving overseas Police Officers who have
more than three years service. In particular we are looking for people
with high levels of competence in General Police duties, Traffic duties or
Criminal Investigators.


What next? NSW & Queensland?

Hi Handler
Is there any chance you can email me the Overseas Recruitment Cover Sheet or put it on here somewhere for anyone else?

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this e-mail yesterday.... Does anybody know anyone who has transferred out there previously?? Just wondering what the process is like?

The chance of emigrating has now doubled with both wapol and nz now recruiting...

Good luck everybody!!!

2.4 k = 1.5 miles = 6 laps of the track in 10 minutes 15 seconds

Take a look at:

Yes, your very own bi-annual fitness test!

Best put the glass down and get the trainers on!

You'll need MS Office on your PC (the coversheet is on Excel), apparently most home PC systems don't have them, just the Wordpad Stuff. I've got MS XP Home and mine couldn't read it.

Either send it to yourself at work where they will have office or load the free 60 day trial of MS Office 2003 from their website. It takes a while to download and install but works fine.

I could send it to you again, but you'll undoubtedly have the same problem as your computer probably still can't read it!

Thanks mate R U going to apply? I am very much interested, however am worried about being accepted and failing. I am 25yrs with 3 1/2yrs in the MET, and at present feel i am quite established, (I'll be telling you my life story now ). I have just bought a house... and although the quality of life, i'm sure will be better, i do worry about the KIWI's maybe not liking us take there jobs, and whether the government will support us if we have children etc, like the UK with NHS and child credits. I am just interested on another persons view!

They did this a couple of years ago. 'Apparently' they are after 80 and have had 3,000 enquiries, but this is not confirmed.

Also, they are saying next to nothing about what they are offering, though they do have a recognition of prior police service policy.

Remember though, as you will see in this and other sites, you will be a migrant worker and must be able to cope with this.

Don't worry, you're allowed to have kids if you want them - it's not China!

Nobody can make a decision like this for you, do your research, speak to people and come to your own decision - the 'us' decision if I read your post right?

Good Luck

Hi -
I'm a reporter on the Evening Standard and I'm doing a piece on the Kiwi recruitment drive for British officers. I'll be talking to an ex-Met officer who went over in the last wave but wondered if I might have a chat with you about the issue as well. I'd prefer to do it using your name etc but if you wanted to chat anonymously we could do that as well.
Let me know what you think.
Regards,
Lech Mintowt-Czyz

What sort of piece will you be doing in The Standard.I'm sure many people won't be too happy about article appearing as it will then act as kind of free advert for them and they will be inundated with applicants !!!
