Working for the Police Prosecution Service

There are two sides to every story - want to front ours?

Do you have exceptional judgement and practical advocacy experience? Can you facilitate solutions in an adversarial environment? The Police Prosecution Service (PPS) offers an attractive remuneration and leave package, comprehensive training and a different view of policing.

In 2013/14 PPS handled almost 105,000 prosecution cases and 5182 diversions. We have a national office in Wellington and 41 service delivery offices spread from Kaitaia in the far North to Invercargill in the deep South serving 60 district courts.
