Where do we need cops?

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

Certain areas are now open for application with all other district/areas currently closed. 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.

Applications are only for areas that are currently open. Do not apply for an open area with the intention of then moving elsewhere as we will not consider your application.

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

Please check the Constabulary Recruitment Updates page for more information.
