POL Police Protection
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.
The Public Safety Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will not be formed for this project and the draft material is Not For Public Access and will not be available for public consultation. Consultation with police subject matter experts during the development will be co-ordinated through Australia New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency (ANZPAA).
Regular updates will be posted on this page throughout the life of the project.
If you have any questions about this project please contact the Industry Manager.
The following products will be submitted to the AISC for consideration no later than 30 June 2021:
- 2 Qualifications
- 9 Units of Competency
- Case for Endorsement

The Case for Endorsement is expected to be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee by 30 June 2021.
