Three new probationary constables have commenced duties in Chifley Police District after they attested at a formal ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy last week.
Deputy Premier, Minister for Police and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole congratulated the newest recruits in Goulburn and then attended Bathurst Police Station to welcome the new police officers to the Bathurst Electorate in their first days of working.
“The students of Class 352 have committed themselves to eight months of training at the Police Academy and should be acknowledged for their achievements,” Mr Toole said.
“Our current police officers across the state will welcome the new probationary constables over the coming weeks as they join the beat in regional, rural and metro communities.
“The NSW Government is proud to offer its continued support to the NSW Police Force as we strive to keep the people of NSW safe.”
Of the three new recruits in the local area, one will be stationed at each of the following stations: Bathurst, Lithgow and Cowra.
The NSW Government announced in 2019 the delivery of 1500 additional officers over four years to enhance community safety across NSW.
Class 352 includes 142 men and 60 women from all ages, backgrounds and regions across the state and country.
