SIX NEW POLICE ON THE BEAT IN MOREE, INVERELL, ARMIDALE AND GLEN INNES

Friday, 23 August 2019

 

SIX additional new police officers will be welcomed to the region next week by Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall after graduating today from the Goulburn Police Academy as part of Class 338.

 

The new Probationary Constables will report for duty for the first time on Monday with two officers at Moree, two at Inverell, one at Armidale and one at Glen Innes Police Stations.

 

Mr Marshall congratulated the new recruits today on graduating from the Goulburn Police Academy and thanked them for their commitment to preventing and disrupting crime. He will meet all six new officers on Monday morning at Inverell, as they begin their induction program.

 

“The new recruits will be wonderful additions to the local police ‘family’ and it’s great to know they will be very supported by their fellow officers as well as a growing group of young officers who have arrived over the past 18 months,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“Since the start of 2018 there have been 27 new police officers begin their careers at police stations across the Northern Tablelands.

 

“Policing can be an extremely challenging profession but with the training they’ve received from the academy and from what they’ll learn in their local commands they’ll be adequately prepared to step into this important role.

 

“If you happen to see our newest officers, please stop, say g’day and welcome them to our region.”

 

Class 338 included 269 students, 177 policemen and 92 policewomen, who have all undertaken eight months of intense training in the Constable Education Program (CEP).

 

The NSW Government has committed to fortify the force into the future with the investment of more than $583 million over four years to deliver 1,500 extra police across the State.
