Police in Schools

The Police in Schools Program involves sworn police officers performing duties and providing a uniformed police presence in colleges throughout the State, as nominated by the Department of Education. The Program is aimed at strengthening the relationship between police and young people resulting in outcomes beneficial to the whole community.

Police officers continue to participate in an educative and law enforcement role at Elizabeth, Claremont, Hellyer, Launceston, Don and Rosny Colleges. These officers commit up to four hours per day during school terms. Benefits to the students and school communities are enhanced safety and security on campus, and a more positive image of police and authority.

For further information please contact your local District Community Policing Service, phone: 131 444, or 1800 POL TAS (1800 765 827) if calling from outside Tasmania.
