Please note:

Successful candidates will be expected to pass a five day Officer Safety Training course (OST) during their probationary period or during their first six months in the Agency (Civil Service transfers). Failure to do so would mean you would not be able to continue in the operational Investigator role, we would seek to find you an alternative non-operational role within the agency.

The OST combines cognitive input, armed and unarmed defense theory and practical techniques and as such, requires a level of physical exertion, due to the nature and repetition of the drills. The practical techniques include use of body weapons, movement and positioning, strikes (armed/unarmed) blocks, restraint and control. We will expect officers attending the course to have a standard of physical fitness. Progressive full body warm-ups are conducted each day to minimise risk of injury to the officer. It is expected the officer is capable of a ground descent and ascent, unaided and within a reasonable timeframe. This is important both individually and in team tactics.

Individuals may be exposed to Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (CSAE)material.
