Participants from the Victoria Police Diversity Recruitment Program recently graduated from a 15-week course in Policing Recruitment.
The program, which is delivered by Victoria Police in partnership with the African Australian Multicultural Employment and Youth Services (AAMEYS), Jesuit Social Services, Victoria University Polytechnic, AMES Australia, MatchWorks, and Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, provides participants from African-Australian backgrounds with the skills and training necessary to successfully complete the Victoria Police recruitment process.
15 of the participants have submitted their online application to sit the Victoria Police entrance exam and will be mentored and supported by Victoria Police members throughout the recruitment process and during their time at the Victoria Police Academy.
During the graduation, participants had the opportunity to meet with their Victoria Police mentors and receive their certificates of completion from Superintendent Mark Porter from Victoria Police.
Participants and their families will visit the Police Academy on Sunday 7th April, and complete a mock physical exam to help their preparation to complete the Victoria Police recruitment process.
