At the end of your cadet training you'll have reason to graduate with pride, knowing that you have trained hard for the work and situations you will meet in the operational environment. Upon successful completion of this part of the Constable Development Program you'll receive the Certificate IV Justice Studies (Policing).
Your graduation day will be a formal occasion. After the swearing-in ceremony, conducted before the Commissioner of Police, or Deputy, and other senior officers, you'll march in the Graduation Parade in front of family, friends, some of your future work mates and senior community, police and government members. The parade formally recognises your achievements and will provide a strong break point between study and commencing your life as a sworn Police Officer. Following your parade there is an opportunity to have tea and coffee with your family and friends and to meet your new Local Service Area Commander in the Academy Mess.
At this point you’ll also know that your time at the Academy is just the beginning of your education. After graduation you’ll become a Probationary Constable, but you never stop learning.
