PCLEC Pacific Advisor Secondment

The PICP in collaboration with the Australian Federal Police is pleased to offer a secondment opportunity for a senior member of a Pacific policing jurisdiction to be involved in the design of the new Pacific Centre for Law Enforcement Cooperation (PCLEC). This exciting new concept will look to improve the coordination of capability development across Pacific policing. The secondment will be for a period of up to 6 months and time will be split between Canberra and Wellington, along with some travel throughout the Pacific. All flights, accommodation and living costs are funded.

If you have a passion for regional policing in the Pacific and feel you can offer your expertise, we invite you to read further in the attached document (see link below) and submit an application as outlined to [email protected]

Seconded Pacific Officer (SPO) Programme

The PICP Secondment programme was established following the 32nd Annual PICP Conference in 2003, where members agreed that the PICP Secretariat would be strengthened and invigorated to meet the objectives of the PICP Strategic Plan by hosting secondments of Pacific police service members.

Current focus of the programme is on matching opportunities with expertise and skill development needs of the individual and their police service. Participants – referred to as Seconded Pacific Officers (SPOs) – are drawn from all PICP member countries (excluding NZ and Australia) and complete a short-term deployment to the PICP Secretariat office at NZ Police National Headquarters in Wellington, New Zealand.

Applications are currently not being taken. Details on the next round of applications to be advised in due course.


Women’s Advisory Network (WAN) Exchange Programme

The PICP WAN Exchange programme offers short-term development opportunities to both sworn and unsworn women from Pacific police services.  The programme aims to enhance the careers of women in Pacific policing by:

  1. Providing an opportunity to work alongside police officers in another Pacific jurisdiction;
  2. Providing an opportunity to research initiatives adopted by other Pacific police services, in particular on issues affecting women in Pacific policing; and
  3. Promoting the sharing of knowledge and networking with fellow PICP WAN members to strengthen the bond and support for women in Pacific policing.

Expressions of interest for the 2019/20 exchange programme will be sought later in the year.
