Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith announced that 18 new recruits will join the Nepean and Blue Mountains Local Area Commands following on from their recent graduation from the Goulburn Police Academy.

“After more than eight months of training at the academy and university-level education it’s great news that our community will see 18 new officers patrolling the streets and attending to incidents, following Friday’s Police attestation parade of Class 334,” said Stuart Ayres

“Community safety is of paramount importance and I am absolutely thrilled to welcome the new probationary constables to the Nepean/Blue Mountains region.

“Becoming a sworn police officer is a tremendous honour. The mere presence of a blue uniform puts our minds at ease, however it also comes with enormous challenges.

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

“I commend our newest officers on making the decision to put the community’s safety above their own and joining one of the proudest organisations in the state.”

The Minister for Police Troy Grant said the Liberals & Nationals 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.

“The security and safety of the people of NSW is a top priority for this Government and these new Probationary Officers will be a great asset in helping to identify, disrupt and combat crime in the local community,” Mr Grant said.

“These men and women are about to embark on a tough but rewarding career. I am proud to welcome the newest members to the NSW Police family, and I wish them the best for their future policing career.”
