DRESS AND GROOMING REQUIREMENTS
As a policing student attending the Police Academy, there are particular requirements about what you can and can not wear, hair standards and grooming. These requirements are similar for police officers and contribute to transitioning to the requirements of the NSW Police Force as a sworn officer. Follow the link for more information.
BODY ART AND MODIFICATION POLICY
Applicants are not permitted to apply or attend the Police Academy if you have body art or body modifications that do not comply with the current NSW Police Force Body Art and Modifications Policy.
During November 2013, the NSW Police Force introduced a new policy, Body Art and Modification Policy. This document details requirements for applicants seeking to join the NSW Police Force. The Policy is now effective and if you are considering applying to join the NSW Police Force, please access the document to ensure you meet our professional suitability requirements.
STUDENT DRUG AND ALCOHOL POLICY
The NSW Police Force undertakes student drug and alcohol testing of policing students whilst at the Police Academy.
PERSONAL USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA
All Police Force employees must comply with a range of policies, guidelines, legislation and procedures. In the case of social media, as a policing applicant you should access and read the NSW Police Force Personal Use of Social Media Policy and Guidelines. As a policing applicant, similar compliance is expected from policing students in the ADPP - policing student requirements will be explained to students during their orientation at the commencement of each intake.
