Where do we need cops?

Protecting and serving your community as a Police Officer is an amazing career choice!

We will soon be accepting applications for a few areas only. Please note some areas will only be open for applications to a specific location.

If an area you want to apply for will not be open, continue with your fitness and learning journey and rest assured the opportunity to join New Zealand Police will be there soon.

We are seeking applications from those who already meet our fitness standards and are ready to hit the ground running in District.
