Your Security

Working within any police service involves a number of obvious risks, as police officers are employed to protect the public and property. Applying for and working within the Police Service of Northern Ireland is no exception and the local situation can mean that police officers, or those applying to be police officers, can be exposed to a higher level of personal risk than most other people.

In order to minimise the level of risk that you or other people may encounter in applying to join the Police Service of Northern Ireland, you are advised to be discreet about your application (in particular, information relating to your test dates / sessions) and tell only people in whom you have confidence. Similarly you should keep secure all documents relating to your application.
