IPROWD Training Program

Indigenous Police Recruiting Our Way Delivery - IPROWD

IPROWD is a specialist program to assist Aboriginal people to gain entry to the NSW Police Academy at Goulburn which is the first step to becoming an officer in the NSW Police Force.

This ABC 7.30 Report video was filmed in 2011 and provides the background story to IPROWD which is now accessible across nine TAFE NSW Institutes.

The Australian Government, TAFE NSW, The NSW Police Force and Charles Sturt University are working in partnership to offer IPROWD training programs at a range of locations in NSW.
