Nepean/Blue Mountains Local Area Commands will welcome 14 new probationary constables following the attestation parade of Class 333.

Member for Penrith, Stuart Ayres MP congratulated the new recruits on graduating from the Goulburn Police Academy and thanked them for their extraordinary commitment to the safety and security of the people of NSW.

“The 14 new probationary constables will be a great asset to the region and will undoubtedly play a vital role in identifying, disrupting and combatting local crime.

“Becoming a police officer is a tremendous honour, however it can be an extremely challenging and demanding profession,” Stuart Ayres said.

“Having recently completed eight months training at the Police Academy, the new officers will continue to receive on-the-job training under the guidance of experienced police to ensure they are adequately prepared for this important new role.

“On behalf of the local community, I thank the latest crop of men and women in blue for joining one of the proudest organisations in the state and look forward to seeing more boots on the ground in Nepean/Blue Mountains communities.

Minister for Police Troy Grant said the NSW Government committed to increasing the authorised strength of the NSW Police Force to a record 16,795 over this term, and we have achieved that and more.

“As a community, we turn to the police in our worst hour and expect them to stand in harm’s way to prevent criminal activity.

“While these probationary constables will undoubtedly face many challenges during their time in the Force, they will be rewarded with the knowledge they have solved major crimes, brought criminals to justice, and given closure to victims and their families.”

Class 333 brings the number of sworn officers to pass through the Goulburn Police Academy to 4,596, since 2011.
