Tasmania Police’s numbers will once again be bolstered with 40 police recruits commencing their training this week as part of the Tasmanian Liberal Government’s plan to keep Tasmanians safe.

These 18 women and 22 men will complete 31 weeks of intensive training including road policing, scenario-based training, investigations and operational skills in both the North and South of Tasmania.

This course includes the first satellite Launceston recruit course, enabling Tasmania Police recruits to complete their training in the North of the State for the first time ever.

Once they complete their training, the northern-based recruits will be stationed in their home districts, so they won’t need to move across the State for their job.

I would like to wish our new recruits all the best as they commence their course, which marks the start of what will be an extremely rewarding career with Tasmania Police.

Police officers are highly regarded and respected within our community for the invaluable and life-changing work they undertake.

If you are interested in policing as a career, applications to join Tasmania Police are open. For more details please visit our Recruitment website –

The Tasmanian Liberal Government has been rebuilding police numbers since coming to Government through recruiting 308 additional police officers, which is a 30 per cent increase to ensure that Tasmanians continue to remain safe.
