TWO NEW POLICE RECRUITS CONTINUE TO BOOST THE BLUE LINE AT MOREE

Monday, 11 December 2017

THE Moree-based Barwon Local Area Command will welcome another two new probationary constables to the Moree Police Station following last Friday’s attestation parade of Class of 332, Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall announced today.

The latest allocation of recruits brings to 13 the total number of probationary constables allocated from the Police Academy to Moree Police Station in the past 12 months – a substantial boost to the blue line and boots on the ground in the community.

The last two probationary constables were allocated in August this year.

Mr Marshall 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,” Mr Marshall 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 Moree Police Station will ensure they are more than adequately prepared to step into this important role.

“Policing can be an extremely challenging profession and 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 officers starting their career on the beat.”

Mr Marshall said the NSW Government had undertaken to boost frontline police numbers across the State through the re-engineering process.

“The men and women who attested last Friday will bring the number of individuals who have become sworn NSW Police officers since 2011 to 4,362,” Mr Marshall said.

Class 332 includes 199 recruits who have attested as Probationary Constables. These new recruits will commence on-the-job training today and will continue distance education before graduating with an Associate Diploma in Policing Practice.

The NSW Government is committed to boosting the authorised strength of the NSW Police Force to 16,795 over this term of government.
