New Policing course for Tarawera High students

Students who complete a new policing course at Tarawera High school could be on a pathway to becoming an officer by the time they leave school.

Or at least that's the goal behind the The NCEA Level 3 and 4 Introduction to Police Studies courses which cover the context of policing in New Zealand, relevant legislation, policies, strategies, procedures and ethics.

Principal Helen Tuhoro says the course will be added to the school's current defence force programme.
