An internship with the police can lead to a long and successful career in law enforcement.

As well as the possibility of leading to a career in the police, an internship can also lead to jobs in the traffic police, municipal police or private security.


There are many different internships available with the police.

SAPS application forms for training

Anyone applying for a career with SAPS will have to undergo intense training. Every year SAPS offers leadership within each province of South Africa. Most leadership programs are for a duration of 24 months.

Candidates must apply for SAPS training in the province where they reside. Therefore, SAPS application forms for trainees must be obtained from and submitted (in person) to the SAPS department offices within the region/province in which you live.

The closing date for training applications may differ depending on the different departments of SAPS. Candidates are advised to check the closing date for applications with their local police office.
