The Northern Territory police force will search across the country and internationally to fill two deputy commissioner positions.

The move follows a decision by current deputy Mark Payne to move to the role of commissioner of correctional services, a position he has been acting in since November last year.

Commissioner Reece Kershaw says that has sparked a review of policing structures with a decision to have two deputy commissioners to better meet the needs of the force.
