Territory police are reaching out with the long arm of the law to draw more recruits into the ranks.
This week that recruitment drive shifts to Katherine.
If you've every thought about joining the police as a career there's certainly plenty of jobs there at the moment.
Police are taking an unabashed view of recruiting Territorians first to fill the jobs on offer.
The NT Government has provided an extra $20 million for an extra 131 extra police and support staff to protect the NT's border and keep Territorians safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
Superintendent Neil Hayes said it was no longer a question of whether you are fit enough, or whether you have been to school long enough, but whether you wanted to do it.
And he was quick to say it was certainly not a question of whether you are tall enough.
"Look, that might have been something considered in the 1970s but not anymore, that's for sure," he said after arriving in Katherine today.
Police will answer any and all questions at the Katherine shopping centre during the week.
They will be at the shopping centre from tomorrow morning (Thursday) 11.30am to 2pm doing a static display and then at the YMCA from 3-5pm.
On Friday, they'll be at Katherine Oasis from 9.30am to 11am available to answer questions and then back at YMCA from 3pm.
The police recruitment team is offering a fitness assessment, more popularly known as a "come and try day" on Saturday at the sportsgrounds.
All that you have to do is wear suitable footwear, clothing and bring a water bottle. It starts from 8am.
Supt Hayes said there were many "streams" available with the police force, not just constables on the beat.
There are Aboriginal policing units, police auxiliaries and the like.
He said a lot of that information (including how much they get paid) was available on the police website to check out.
"But if people have questions of any sort, just come and ask us, that's why we are in Katherine."
Supt Hayes said the recruitment policy was not to try for a perfect balance of male and female.
"We are looking for the best recruits we can get, male or female," he said.
He said many people had questions about how to become a detective or how decisions are made where police are posted - just pop along and ask.
