The recruit selection process for Community Constables includes:

Panel interview

The interview with members of South Australia Police gives you the opportunity to show that you have the qualities to succeed as a Community Constable. Your interview will take place in your local community and will cover areas such as leadership, decisiveness, problem solving, stress management and integrity.

Medical examination

This will be conducted by the Police Medical Section and you must meet the necessary standard to undertake the duties of a Community Constable.

Psychology test

You will need to undertake a psychological assessment which will be conducted by our police psychologist.

Final selection

If you reach a satisfactory standard in the interview tests and assessments, you may be considered for selection as a Community Constable. However, final selection will take into account all aspects of our selection process, including your character, background and integrity checks (which involves the provision of a DNA sample).
