MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has welcomed six newly graduated probationary constables to the Barwon and New England Police Commands after being among the more than 200 NSW Police Force recruits to be formally sworn in at the Police Academy in Goulburn today.
Mr Marshall said four probationary constables would be deployed at the Moree Police Station and two at Armidale on Monday and, in doing so, join terrific communities.
“These probationary constables have chosen a career that will see them serve the community by protecting lives and property, investigating and solving crime and keeping the people of this great state safe,” Mr Marshall said.
“They have worked hard at the Goulburn Academy and have today been formally sworn in ahead of starting their new lives as probationary constables in the Northern Tablelands.
“This is largest group of new officers we’ve seen come to our region from the academy and they are a very welcome boost to our local police ranks.
“I’m looking forward to welcoming the new officers to our region in person over the coming weeks.”
Mr Marshall said he was proud of all the attesting officers who have chosen to take on a career that comes with many challenges but equally many rewards.
“The NSW Government will continue to invest in the NSW Police Force to provide the best for them so they can keep the community safe,” he said.
More than 3,200 officers have passed through the Goulburn Academy since the NSW Government was elected in March 2011.
