Life in the REAL outback

With over 50 police stations, remote policing provides people with the opportunity to experience the best the Territory has to offer.

Often people who have had the opportunity to live, work and police in remote communities of the Northern Territory develop a whole range of work and life skills that make them a more competent, well rounded and experienced police officer.


Recruiting to our regional police stations

It’s also great for promotional opportunity as it is highly unlikely that people will be able to enter specialist policing streams in the future without having remote policing experience behind them, such is the importance placed on the knowledge, skills and attributes remote service provides.

Remote policing is your opportunity to make a difference, experience life in our fantastic towns and communities and allow yourself to grow as a Territory police officer. The challenge is yours to take and the opportunities are there! These profiles will provide you and your family with snapshot information for each remote location.
