Overseas Applicants

(Transferee constables)


Falkland Islanders are proud of their self-sufficient and resilient nature and this is also reflected in the culture of the Royal Falkland Islands Police.

In contrast to many larger police services, you will need to be proactive and practical in your approach to policing. To guide your professional decisions and personal conduct, you will need to combine use of existing Falkland Islands Legislation with a healthy dose of pragmatism and common-sense. You will need to be comfortable in applying your judgement and working independently.

Decision-making can be both slow and fast. You will be encouraged to ‘get things done’ and apply your knowledge, skills and experience to make decisions which serve the people of the Falkland Islands as best we can.
As with any other employer, the Royal Falkland Islands Police expects overseas contract officers to come here fully equipped to do the job they have come here to do. Continued professional development is important and you will be expected to keep up to speed with regular training. You will also need to be comfortable with living in close proximity with your colleagues and the people you serve.
