POL Police Protection

Project scope

The purpose of the project is to review two existing qualifications and nine existing Units of Competency for Police Protection. These services are essential to protecting communities and relevant international and domestic stakeholders as police protection officers support the safety and security of individuals who may be under imminent threat or danger. Federal, state and territory police have identified the need to review two existing qualifications and nine Units of Competency to ensure they are fit for purpose, reflect contemporary practice and operational policing requirements.
