Careers

Our mission is to deliver services that ensure New Zealand communities are confident, safe, and secure, with less actual crime, road trauma, and fewer victims. Police operates 24-hours a day in a complex environment. With nearly 12,000 staff, we function from 371 community-based police stations, operate on land, sea and air, and respond to over 600,000 emergency calls every year.

In such a large and complex organisation, there are numerous opportunities to engage in interesting and challenging roles. Our people come to work to make a difference to the lives of everyone in New Zealand. We pride ourselves in being one of the most trusted police services in the world. People who choose to work at Police constantly demonstrate our Values to build a high-performance culture, and to keep people safe.

We provide rewarding and challenging jobs – this is why many people remain with Police throughout their careers. Police employees feel a real sense of personal achievement from their work, as they know they are helping to ensure that New Zealand’s communities are safer and more secure.

Police provides a supportive work environment which values team work. At the heart of this is a strong feeling of camaraderie between colleagues who share a sense of responsibility, loyalty and pride in what they do.
