Police recruiting  is  looking  for  new applicants to join the Aboriginal Cadet Program.

The program provides participants with a first-hand view of the dynamic and exciting world of policing. Cadets gain exposure to a range of unique policing activities and get a true taste of what it means to be part of the WA Police Force family. 

Applicants must be between 17 – 25 years of age and of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent. Cadets are paid during their training and will earn a nationally accredited qualification at the end of the program. 

Applications  are  open  now.  The  next  school  is  scheduled to commence in January 2021 and applications from  both  metropolitan  and  regional  locations  are  being accepted. Police  Recruiting  will  be  holding  an  information  session for anyone interested in applying on Saturday, 10 October at the Police Academy. 

To register for the information session or to download an application form, visit the Step Forward website.

Interested  people  from  regional  locations  are  encouraged  to  contact  Police  Recruiting  directly  for  more information.
