More than 100 new recruits to the NSW Police Force have officially walked off the parade ground this morning, after attesting at the Police Academy in Goulburn.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Police Troy Grant said the 105 probationary constables join a proud and historic force in NSW.
“These recruits have chosen 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,” Mr Grant said.
“They have worked hard at the Goulburn Academy and have today been formally sworn in ahead of starting their new lives as probationary constables across the state.
“These officers will be located around the state from Mount Druitt to Wilcannia, Cronulla to Wagga Wagga and Manly to Bega.
“They will be called upon to help the community and lead by example through their conduct, and may be asked to put their lives on the line to protect community safety.
“For that I can’t thank them enough – I am extremely proud of these men and women who have chosen a profession with the knowledge of the challenges they will face, particularly in a policing environment where police themselves are under threat.
“The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government recognises the efforts and sacrifices these officers will make throughout their careers and we will continue to invest in the NSW Police Force to provide the best for them so they can keep the community safe.”
More than 3,000 officers have passed through the Goulburn Academy since the NSW Liberals & Nationals came to Government in March 2011.
