Indigenous Police Recruiting Our Way - IPROWD

IPROWD is a specialist program to assist Aboriginal people to gain entry to the NSW Police Academy at Goulburn which is the first step to becoming an officer in the NSW Police Force.

This ABC 7.30 Report video was filmed in 2011 and provides the background story to IPROWD which is now accessible across nine TAFE NSW Institutes.

The Australian Government, TAFE NSW, The NSW Police Force and Charles Sturt University are working in partnership to offer IPROWD training programs at a range of locations in NSW.

Support for students after completing the IPROWD Program

IPROWD provides post course support for all IPROWD students for up to 12 months after course graduation to provide assistance to complete CSU and NSW Police Force applications, complete medicals and attend the fitness and psychometric tests. 

IPROWD students are also supported to look for other employment while they wait to finalise the Police recruitment process, or to support students who are seeking employment in other areas.
