Four New Police Officers for the Eastern Suburbs
The Rose Bay and Eastern Beaches Local Area Commands will welcome four new probationary constables this Monday following today’s Police Academy attestation parade of Class of 329.
Vaucluse MP Gabrielle Upton and Coogee MP Bruce-Notley-Smith congratulated the new recruits on graduating from the Goulburn Police Academy and thanked them for choosing to devote their careers to such an honourable cause.
“On behalf of our community, I want to thank our newest officers for their tireless commitment to combating crime, and protecting the community,” Ms Upton said.
“I know the qualifications they have completed at the Police Academy, together with the on-the-job training that our officers will undertake at the Rose Bay and Eastern Beaches Local Area Commands, will ensure they are more than adequately prepared for this important role.
“Policing can be a very challenging career. Our officers encounter the best and the worst of humanity, so I’m very pleased that our community will benefit from the enthusiasm of four new officers starting their job on the beat,” Mr Notley-Smith said.
Class 329 includes 130 recruits who have attested as Probationary Constables. These new recruits will commence on-the-job training on Monday and will continue distance education before graduating with an Associate Diploma in Policing Practice.
The men and women taking attestations today will join more than 3,759 officers who have become sworn officers in the NSW Police Force since 2011.
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.
