Professionals in the police force and related law enforcement fields serve and protect Australian citizens on local, state and international levels. The people working in this industry are dedicated to providing a safe environment for all Australians to live in. Police courses provide the preliminary training and education required for entry into the police force. They also prepare students to enter related career areas, such as correctional services, border protection and child protection services. Police courses are carefully developed through close working relationships between educational and policing institutions to ensure a comprehensive, tailored program is delivered.
