Indigenous Police Recruitment Our Way Delivery IPROWD

BE BOLD and build safer communities

The Indigenous Police Recruitment Our Way Delivery Program (IPROWD) supports Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people to join the NSW Police Force or other Justice and Emergency Services Agencies. Since 2008 more than 700 Aboriginal students have enrolled, with many going on to gain employment with NSW Police as sworn and unsworn officers, or working in other government agencies.

The IPROWD program is designed to prepare students for the University Certificate in Workforce Essentials (UCWE), the Associate Degree in Policing Practice (ADPP) offered by Charles Sturt University (CSU) at the NSW Police Academy, or other Vocational and Study Pathways.

IPROWD - Making a difference

Make a difference to yourself and your community with the IPROWD program - just like Isaiah did.

Choosing another course of action

Even though Isaiah doesn’t work as part of the NSW Police Force, he firmly believes what he learned during his studies at TAFE NSW in the IPROWD program gave him a massive boost to succeed.

“The program is all about enabling Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to gain access into the NSW Police Force,” he says. “I completed that, connected with the community and it helped me develop the mindset that I could achieve anything in my life.”

Proof of that is the list of achievements Isaiah has accomplished: TAFE NSW Graduate of the Year 2017, working at the Australian Human Rights Commission, Lendlease, the AFL and Tribal Warrior, as well as sitting on the Youth Ambassadors team for the Aboriginal Child, Family and Community Care State Secretariat (ABSEC, NSW). Isaiah has also been selected as part of an international leadership exchange program within the USA.
