Police recruitment night in the Eastern BOP
Eastern Bay of Plenty Police are holding a recruitment information night on March 18.
Being held in Whakatane on Monday March 18 from 6.30pm-8.30pm, it’s a great opportunity for anyone who is interest in joining the NZ Police to come along and talk to staff to find out more about the job.
NZ Police say they are looking to recruit people who are compassionate and empathetic, and who want to make a positive difference in their community.
“Even if you don’t think you are ready to apply, talk to us about how police can help you to get ready and how we will support you through the recruitment process.
“Come along to this night with your friends or family if becoming a police officer is something you have always wanted to find out more about.”
