GLEN INNES, MOREE AND INVERELL TO WELCOME NEW POLICE RECRUITS

THREE 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 337.

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

Their arrival brings the total number of new police officers in the New England Police District to 31 in the last two years.

Mr Marshall congratulated the new recruits on graduating from the Goulburn Police Academy and thanked them for their commitment to preventing and disrupting crime.

“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 two years,” Mr Marshall said.

“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 337 included 261 recruits who have attested as Probationary Constables. These new recruits will commence on-the-job training and will continue distance education before graduating with an Associate Diploma in Policing Practice.

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