If you are a former police officer of Victoria Police and are interested in applying to return in a policing role, then you must register with the Police
Registration and Services (PRS) Board). Upon registration, the Chief Commissioner or their authorised delegate will consider the advice of the PRS Board in
determining your appointment.
What is the PRS Board?
The PRS Board is an independent statutory body committed to the professionalisation of policing through registration and professional standard functions.
The PRS Board also conducts the independent review and appeal functions for Victoria Police resulting from promotion, transfers and disciplinary action.
The Police Profession Register is the mechanism for registration of the former Victoria Police Officers. The register is maintained by the Registration
Division of the PRS Board. The Registration Division commenced operation on 1 April, 2014.

What does the registration process involve?
The Victoria Police Act 2013 outlines the police registration process. A person is qualified for registration if they are of good character and
reputation; has any qualifications and experience prescribed by the regulations for registration at a specified rank; and have the aptitude and efficiency
required to perform as a police officer at a specified rank.
The assessment process for applicants who have applied for registration includes assessment against the capabilities for the rank the applicant has
nominated, as well as service history and probity checks.
How do I apply for registration?
To commence the registration process, please call the PRS Board to obtain the applicable forms. Incomplete applications or delays in the assessment process
may prolong the process.
For further information in relation to the registration process, please contact the PRS Board.

What does the employment process involve?
Former Victoria Police officers must be registered with the PRS Board prior to being considered for re-employment with Victoria Police. It is important to
note that registration on the Police Profession Register does not guarantee re-employment with Victoria Police. Once registered, a merit based employment
process will be conducted.
