      Wa police

      Hi, to all!

      I am new to Poms in Oz and am getting used to the website!

      I recently applied for a transfer to WA Police on the recent international recruitment drive and today I've been informed I have passed the initial recruitment processes pending my medical and background checks etc.

      i was wondering if there is anyone that has gone through the same process as if so what advice can you give me?

      If I'm successful I'll be moving to Perth wife my wife and 2 children (aged 4 & 2) and I'm trying to ascertain what areas are good for schooling, housing etc

      Any advice will be greatly appreciated

      Thanks in advance

      James

      Hi James

      well done with your application this far :)
      We have been in Perth almost 4 years now my OH is also a police officer who transfered from the UK .
      No one can really tell you were to live as everyone likes different things .We rented a holiday home for three months when we first arrived near Joondalup as thats were you do your training .As you go through traing you have to apply for postings to stations ,so we didnt want to get settled in one area then have to move because of travel time to work .
      During this time we had a good look around the areas and soon found plenty of places that suited us .

      Good luck with the whole application process .Its so worth it when you arrive or at least it was for us ..

      Hi Tazbear

      Thank you for replying, i was just wondering what force your OH transferred from and how they are finding it in WA? Are they enjoying it and how hard was it adjusting to the new laws and regs etc.
      I've been looking at the areas around Joondalup, but i've been told if successful i'll be posted in the Met area (Perth CBD, Fremantle or an area within this central location.) With this in mind and from what i've been reading, an area south of the river might be considered better for commute etc (Would you agree?)
      I like the sound of renting a holiday home etc for the initial training period, which will give me time to find a suberb etc for more permanent renting etc. How did you go about this and are there any particular letting agents / websites i need to be looking at?

      Apologies for the additional questions, but i thank you in advance.
