Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith announced this week that the local community will see 9 new officers on the beat and responding to emergencies, following the recent police attestation from the Goulburn Police Academy.

The 9 new probationary constables from Class 335 have started duties at Nepean and Blue Mountains Area Commands, where they will embark on their new policing career.

Stuart Ayres congratulated the new recruits on attesting from the academy after more than eight months of training and university education.

“Community safety is absolutely paramount, and I am thrilled to welcome the new probationary constables to the Penrith region,” Stuart Ayres said

“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.”

Minister for Police Troy Grant said the Liberals & Nationals Government has also committed to fortify the force into the future with the recent investment of more than $583 million over four years to deliver 1500 extra police. 

“This will ensure we’re not only able to maintain the current level of service and protection the community expects, but can also meet emerging crime-trends head-on,” Mr Grant said

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

“They are about to embark on a tough but rewarding career. I am proud to welcome them into the NSW Police family, and I wish them all the best for their future policing careers.”
