The Security and Emergency Services Group (SESG) is a group of highly trained officers who provide a range of services to both private and public prisons, Youth Justice custodial centres and Community Correctional Services. 

Some of the SESG's key services include:

  • Barrier control
  • Emergency Management Incident response
  • Canine services
  • High security escorts
  • Correctional staff training.

What values and skills should you have?

Being in the SESG is not for the faint of heart. You will undertake a physically intense training regime and may be placed in high pressure situations in your ongoing work. That means you'll need a capacity to exercise good judgement and undertake effective, timely actions.

Simply put, we need officers who can make good calls and be accountable for them.

To be a good candidate, you will also be an outcome and solutions focused person who is motivated to make a real difference.
