New Cops | Do you care enough?

Effective from 31 March 2020, NZ Police Executive Leadership Board (ELB) agreed on a pause on hiring for all re-join appointments, until further notice.

In recent years, NZ Police have experienced successful recruitment campaigns and re-joins are only one of many strategies that are considered to meet resourcing needs. 

For a period of time now, there have been limited opportunities for former police officers to re-join the organisation.  It is important that we are transparent with those that wish to return, that the opportunities to do so are unlikely to occur in the foreseeable future.
