Protective Service Officer in Hobart, Melbourne, Canberra and Solomon Islands.
Long hours, however can be rewarding.This job is not for everyone, if you are willing to put the time and effort into study you can get promotion on merit. Depending on where and what you are assigned to it can be boring sometimes although mostly it is a worth while career path.
17 years with AFP and would not recommend it to anyone.The AFP does not follow its own guidelines and has no integrity. You leave the job with no transferable skills and no sense of achievement, done waste your life

Terrible workplace, with the worst culture. Very toxic.I would think very long an hard before committing to this organisation. The work culture is very toxic, and management are part of the problem. Training was almost laughable and unorganised, and being unorganised seemed to run through the organisation constantly from a day to day basis.The work life balance was OK, but overshadowed by the poor workplace. Morale is really down and no-one will help you if you have even the simplest of questions.Highly recommend any state police force over this, to get a good policing career, and actually do real police work in the community.

My time in the AFPMy time in thr AFP included getting involved on multiple operations. Its long hours in the AFP, you have to prepare to put in the hours, however the teams you work with will be some of the best people you ever worked with. Management are good, understand your needs and pay is above expectation. I think anyone wishing to persue a career in the AFP, will throughly happy they did.
