Friday, 29 April 2016

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall was pleased to learn that police ranks in the New England and Barwon Police Commands will receive a boost with four newly-graduated officers taking up posts in the Electorate.

Mr Marshall said that three officers have been posted to Moree, while one will take up duties at the Armidale Police Station.

There were 109 recruits in Class 327 formally sworn in at the Police Academy in Goulburn this morning and Mr Marshall said he is looking forward to personally welcoming the Moree recruits next week.

“The new officers will be made to feel very welcome in their new communities and I am looking forward to meeting the three Moree recruits on Monday and welcoming them to a terrific community,” Mr Marshall said.

“These four officers have worked very hard to achieve graduation as a fully sworn Probationary Constable in the NSW Police Force and I congratulate them all.

“They are also to be commended and supported for choosing 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.”

Of the total 109 recruits sworn in today, there are 80 policemen and 29 policewomen;
97 were born in Australia and 12 were born overseas. Their countries of origin include the United Kingdom, Wales, Belgium, Brazil, India, Lebanon, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan and South Korea.

There are also six probationary constables who identify as being of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island background. The youngest recruit is aged 20 and the oldest is 51.
