3 NEW POLICE OFFICERS FOR OXLEY AREA COMMAND
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the Oxley Police Area Command will welcome three new probationary constables following the attestation parade of Class 333 at Goulburn Police Academy.
Mr Anderson congratulated the new recruits on their graduation and thanked them for their extraordinary commitment to the safety and security of the people of NSW.
“The three new probationary constables will be a great asset to the community and will undoubtedly play a vital role in identifying, disrupting and combatting local crime,” Mr Anderson said.
“Becoming a police officer is a tremendous honour, however it can be an extremely challenging and demanding profession.
“Having recently completed eight months training at the Police Academy, the new officers will continue to receive on-the-job training under the guidance of experienced police to ensure they are adequately prepared for this important new role.
“On behalf of the local community, I thank the latest crop of men and women in blue for joining one of the proudest organisations in the state and look forward to seeing more boots on the ground in Oxley Police Area Command.
“As a community, we turn to the police in our worst hour and expect them to stand in harm’s way to prevent criminal activity.
“While these probationary constables will undoubtedly face many challenges during their time in the Force, they will be rewarded with the knowledge they have solved major crimes, brought criminals to justice, and given closure to victims and their families,” Mr Anderson concluded.
Class 333 brings the number of sworn officers to pass through the Goulburn Police Academy to 4,596, since 2011.
