    No worries!

    There is a relatively strict heirachy (uh-oh pack talk haha) and there are some down sides to it. For my husband the RAAF gives far too many benefits as well as allowing him to do a job that he adores. I know better than most that military life isn't for everyone!

    What would you do with the police as part of the dog squad?

    I enjoyed the course, especially training for my complex skills exam.

    I work in marketing and my husband works in education

    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    I would discuss all of the different roles and things that police dogs have in the WA police with someone in the department before starting my application process, but from what I've read so far I'd expect to do things like public order enforcement and drug detection, I'm very interested in learning more about search and rescue as well. One thing I really would not be looking forward to is working as a cadaver dog team. Murder - not for me. But if that's what the duty entails, that's what I'll do. This is just general police dog duties though, not specifically WA police dog duties. I'd like to find a canine police officer in WA whom I can talk to in more detail.

    I do as little as possible!!!

    Retired about 5 yrs ago, OH (force)retired in 2008. We hang out and just do "stuff".

    I was sales manager of major Japanese electronics Corporation, OH was director of a publicly listed telecommunications company. We saw very little of one another when we were working and rearing kids, so now our full time jobs consist of doing most things together (we even rescue the dogs together) and spending the time with the furkids and grandbabies

    I'm fresh out of Uni but wanting to go back to complete my studies. I got screwed over by the only uni that I applied to for this year (dumb move on my behalf). At this stage I have an Honours degree in Psychology and will be applying for my doctorate next year.

    But for now I'm looking for work... yuck. Pretty sure I'll be volunteering this year though

    I'm an IT Officer in local government. I'm not a huge fan of computers but it's a pretty cruisey gig. Just got my data cabling open registration and my fibre optic endorsement which widens my career path a bit. Will be getting certified in CCTV installations in the coming months so hopefully I'll be able to move from network admin work to installing CCTV systems for the government. No more "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" jokes.
