BARWON Local Area Command will welcome two new Probationary Constables to its ranks next week following today’s Police Academy graduation of 178 officers from Class 330.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall welcomes the new recruits, and is pleased to report one of those officers will be stationed at the Moree Police Station, boosting the current strength. The other officer will be stationed at Narrabri.
The MP was also pleased to learn that a further two officers will transfer to Moree and will be on the beat around mid-May, with a Sergeant’s position expected to be filled in the next month or so, adding further experience to the hardworking team.
“This is very welcome and positive news for the Moree district, and on behalf of the community, I extend a warm welcome and our gratitude to the four new officers who have chosen to make Moree their home,” Mr Marshall said.
“I know the qualifications these officers have completed at the Police Academy, together with the on-the-job training they will undertake at Barwon Local Area Command, will ensure they are more than adequately prepared to step into this important role.
“Policing can be an extremely challenging profession, so I’m very pleased that our community will benefit from the enthusiasm of this new officer starting their career on the beat, as well as the more experienced police that will follow shortly.”
Mr Marshall said he was looking forward to an opportunity to meet the new officers in the near future.
“The additional strength at Moree will be applauded by this wonderful community and I encourage everyone to make the officers feel welcome in their new home,” Mr Marshall said.
“I will certainly be making time to meet them all as soon as possible, and I look forward to the opportunity to thank them for their service personally.”
The NSW Government is committed to boosting the authorised strength of the NSW Police Force to 16,795 over this term of Government.
