ACT Police Jobs

The Work

ACT Policing has more than 900 staff committed to ensuring the delivery of policing services to the ACT as well as dedicated Police Volunteers.

As a police officer, you can make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community. ACT Policing is the community policing arm of the Australian Federal Police (AFP), which means when a crime is committed in the ACT you are the first point of contact.

ACT Policing is responsible for providing quality and effective policing services to the ACT. We do this in partnership with the community and the ACT Government. Our mission is to keep the peace and preserve public safety within the ACT. We strive to deliver a professional, innovative and effective policing service in an ever changing environment for the ACT community.

Once you successfully complete your 24-week live-in recruit course at the AFP College in Canberra, you will become a constable of police and be deployed to one of five police stations to undertake general duties.

What we do

ACT Policing works with the community to address victim-based crime, threats to community safety, serious and organised crime, and road safety.

  • Community safety
  • Family violence
  • Drugs and organised crime
  • Sexual assault
  • Fraud
  • Rural patrol
  • Road policing
  • Intelligence
