Have you ever walked into a police station in the Northern Territory to make an enquiry or report an incident, or ever called Triple 000 for police assistance? If so, it is likely the first person you spoke to was an Auxiliary Police Officer. Working as a Northern Territory Police Auxiliary is more than just a job - it's a rewarding career and lifestyle choice.
he Police Auxiliary Scheme was introduced in 1992. The aim was to employ sworn officers for police duties, which did not require fully trained police officers. There are two streams of employment offered as a Police Auxiliary with the first being Communications Auxiliary and the other being Frontline Auxiliary, which includes the following roles: • Front Counter • Watch House • Police Auxiliary Liquor Inspector (PALI). Applicants for Frontline Auxiliary will be required to pass the fitness assessment and undertake Defensive Tactics and Firearms Training
To meet the demands of the roles, the Northern Territory Police Force are looking for people who: • enjoy a varied and challenging career, have life experience and maturity, maintain confidentiality at all times, seek responsibility, show leadership and make decisions; • show initiative while accepting the scrutiny and accountability of working in a disciplined organisation; and • are compassionate, tolerant and enjoy a multicultural and diverse working environment. • possess good oral and written communication skills
Policing in the Northern Territory offers an experience unlike that of any police force in Australia. You can experience professional challenges, lifestyles, people and locations that cannot be found anywhere else. Working as a Northern Territory police officer demands many skills and due to the Territory's vastness police officers are required to display leadership, initiative and resourcefulness to respond to incidents safely and effectively.
