Whether you're dealing with emergency or non-urgent enquiries, you will be trained to alleviate stress, accurately identify the needs of your caller and ensure the appropriate Police response via your knowledge of Police procedure.

While this role is meaningful and rewarding, with a highly supportive environment, it's also the start of a career.  In addition to a competitive salary NZ Police are committed to ensuring quality people stay and develop, with structured pathways into many other roles, including a police officer.

Our Core Competencies provide a shared understanding of the behaviours, leadership and technical competence required for success at each level of Police. Whilst we are looking for skills, knowledge and experience relevant to the role, we also place high importance on your state of mind, the alignment of your values with ours, your ability to contribute to and build high performing teams, and the way that you lead yourself or others.
