Will I be accepted in the NSW POLICE FORCE (Australia), with a history of ANXIETY?


At the age of 14, i developed Anxiety after an allergic reaction, because i was worrying about the reaction. I had to take Zoloft for 12 months, and it cleared Anxiety.

I am now 21, and would like to join the NSW POLICE FORCE. I DO NOT have anxiety, nor take Zoloft anymore.

1. Will i be accepted in the POLICE FORCE?

2. Do you know anyone who HAS been accepted into a Police Force, with a history of Anxiety (similar to me)?

    You were 14 and had a problem and had it fixed and now it is gone. I would not see why they would reject you for that reason, especially something that has been treated.

    You may need to keep an eye on that past issue because you know it can happen.

    Why not contact the Police Force and ask them straight. Be sure to provide factual information and as an extra help, get a letter from your doctor saying you are fine with no recurring issues from the past.

    Well you would have to undergo a psych test and if there is still an issue then you will be assessed on the results. A psych test is compulsory for all new recruits.
