Work Experience with Victoria Police

I was lucky enough to do work experiences with the Victoria Police, at Fawkner Police Station, from the 14th October to 18th October. This work experience gave me the opportunity to work inside the police station with almost all departments of that station. It let me explore this field and observe how things work in a police station. I was performing duties such as answering phone calls, calling lost property owners, filing documents, administration duties and court attendance. During court attendance, I had the opportunity to go to the Broadmeadows Magistrates Court to listen to various cases and observe how the decisions are made by the Magistrate and see the procedures of court hearings. I also improved many of my skills such as telephone manners, interacting with other staff members and communication skills. All the staff at the Fawkner Police Station were friendly and helped me with my tasks. This was one of the best practical, professional experiences that I have ever had in my life!
