‘Fit for Service’ program to offer police force recruitment insight

AN opportunity to develop a better understanding of the NSW Police recruitment process, six-week program ‘Fit for Service’ is on offer at PCYC Auburn.

Starting on Thursday, November 14, it will involve police guest speakers, field visits to specialist police units, assistance with the police application process and assessments, including physical fitness.
The program will conclude with a visit to the NSW Police Academy, where the participants will have an opportunity to experience Academy life and a police graduation and ‘passing out’ parade.
While participating in this program does not give the participant any additional qualification in joining the NSW Police, it will provide an advantage and a greater understanding in the profession they may wish to undertake in the near future.
Senior Constable Gabriella Di Marino said: “This is the first time the program has run at PCYC Auburn but it has run elsewhere in the State and we’re seeing very positive results.
“It gives participants an insight if they’re thinking of joining an accountable profession and also what support services are on offer.”
Participants are not required to pay any fees, however an optional personal fitness program is available, at an additional cost, if required. Meals will be provided.
