After successful completion of the Victoria Police Entrance Examination, Recruiting Services will conduct a preliminary check on your previous history. You may then be contacted to undertake a telephone interview.
The telephone interview has been designed to find out more about why the person applied for the role with Victoria Police and to find out what their expectations of the position are. The questions fall into three sections: 1. The role and organisational requirements 2. Organisational values and behaviours and 3. Questions relating to the responses contained in the application.
If you are deemed suitable to proceed following on from the telephone interview, your previous history will continue to be assessed (traffic, criminal, employment etc.) throughout the entire selection process.
It is important that applicants fully disclose all information relating to prior history including past employment. Failure to disclose information can result in application cancellation.
A copy of the prior history guidelines can be obtained here.
If you are unsure and would to like check if your offence history will affect your application, you may complete a Voluntary Disclosure Form.
