    depending on which location, you could get 90k straight away with OT. yeah its about 65k working standard hours. double time for any hours over standard fortnightly roster. If you get promotions or go into specialised roles, you can comfortably clear 100k. 5 weeks leave a year.

    I think you'll find its significantly a lot more than only 5 weeks leave a year in Vic.

    We are talking about correction Victoria, not Vic pol. its 5 weeks. Depending on what location you work, you will work 9 day fortnight or less depending on whether you do a 9 hour shift or 12 hour shift.

    Thanks for that , do you work in that field?

    I was interested as they were recruiting but when I saw the remuneration it was a bit low given I've got a mortgage , kid and in comparison to what I earn now
    Would be more then happy doing OT so might reassess

    Yeah sure do.

    The location that I work at, I generally work an 2 extra shifts a fortnight. Could work more, if I wanted. From what I understand there is plenty of OT at most locations. It's one of those jobs where the money is there if you want it.

    Screws earning more than coppers. Unbelievable the country we live in.

    One you need a clean criminal history to even be considered.
    The other a criminal history gets you a shoe in the door.

    :D You only earn the big 100k, if you can be bothered dealing muppets 24/7. Their irrational whinging about the most unimportant bullshit will have you knock back OT, after a while. however a lot of guys do it. Then again, I have low muppet tolerance levels. 2 extra shifts put you on about 85-88k a year, so working a 100 hour fortnight.

    If only you boys could go a little 'old school' on some of them without the scrutiny of cctv and social justice warriors...

    Whenever I see the job ads, the positions are casual, do people start out like this then get offered full time down the line?

    I always wanted to be a Police officer growing up, still entertain occasional career change thoughts. Whenever I have dealt with them, they've always been professional and polite.
