Nepean Blue Mountains Welcome 10 New Police Officers
Stuart Ayres congratulated the new recruits on graduating from the Goulburn Police Academy and thanked them for their commitment to preventing and disrupting crime.
“I would like to welcome our newest officers to the region, and extend our gratitude to them for devoting their careers to such an honourable cause,” Stuart Ayres said.
“I know the qualifications our officers have completed at the Police Academy, together with the on-the-job training they will undertake at the Local Area Commands will ensure they are more than adequately prepared to step into this important role.
“Policing can be an extremely challenging profession. Our officers encounter the best and the worst of humanity in the line of duty, so I’m very pleased that our community will benefit from the enthusiasm of these 10 new officers starting their career on the beat.”
Minister for Police Troy Grant said the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has undertaken to boost frontline police numbers across the State through the re-engineering process.
“The men and women attesting today will bring the number of individuals who have become sworn NSW Police officers since 2011 to 4,163,” Mr Grant said.
“Today – and every police graduation day – gives us an opportunity to acknowledge the extraordinary commitment and dedication of the men and women who have chosen a career in law enforcement.”
Class 331 includes 226 recruits who have attested as Probationary Constables. These new recruits have now commended on-the-job training and will continue distance education before graduating with an Associate Diploma in Policing Practice.
The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is committed to boosting the authorised strength of the NSW Police Force to 16,795 over this term of Government.
