Default UK Police officer to Aus or NZ


I'm currently a serving police officer in the UK and have been for 6 years now. I'm interested in the near future, to (hopefully) transfer to the Australian or New Zealand police. I am aware that they are not taking any international applications right now and have emailed various police services as an expression of interest however all replies recieved were rather blunt in the fact they did not know when they would / ever re-open recruitment to international applicants. Victoria police were probably the most helpful is actually telling me they are accepting prior recognition of UK police officers however you still need to hold AUS PR Status which seems to be the big road block for most.

I've currently got family who hold both PR and Citizenship status of AUS however this seems to make little difference. I know policing alone isn't likely to get me into AUS or NZ however I do hold a Level 2 Plastering Diploma which I'm hoping could improve my chances of getting PR status and then transferring over. I understand with everything that is going on in the world right now everything has been pretty much put on hold but if any knowledge or ideas on how this could be remotely possible and what my best chances are of moving over I would much appreciate this!

Many Thanks,

Hi Chris

I just wondered if you ever got an answer elsewhere for your question?! It's the exact situation I'm currently in!

Thanks in advance,
