Email application instructions

Creating a PDF File

All application documents should be scanned and included within one PDF file no larger than 10 megabytes (MB). To ensure your file meets this requirement, applicants should:

  • Use basic, non-embedded fonts
  • Output files in grayscale (black and white). Scanning in colour is unnecessary and should be avoided.
  • Output files in a standard resolution, no greater than 300 dots per inch (DPI). Using higher resolutions will greatly increase file size.

To confirm that the PDF file size is within the 10MB limit, right-click on the document and select 'Properties'. This window will provide details about your PDF document, including file size. Emails containing a PDF file larger than 10MB will be rejected by the mail server and applicants shall receive a notification.

Saving Your PDF File

Once you have ensured your PDF file includes all mandatory documents, save the file as follows:

  • (Name of position applied for) application - (First name, surname)
  • For example, an applicant named John Smith applying for the position of police constable would have a filename that read "Police constable application - John Smith". 
Sending Your Application

When sending their application via email, candidates should:

  • Attach their completed PDF application file
  • In the subject field, enter "(Name of position applied for) application - (First name, surname). Once complete, the subject field should reflect the same title as the PDF filename.
  • Send their completed application to

Applicants are responsible for ensuring their scanned application is complete, legible and saved in the format detailed in these instructions. If you are unable to submit your complete application package online, please choose one of the other available options as an alternative.

Applicants should expect an email acknowledgment of your application within 10 days. If you do not receive an acknowledgment, email to ensure your application has been received.
