Three new probationary constables will commence duties in Dubbo and Wellington after 159 new officers attested at a formal ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy on Friday 18 August 2023.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders welcomed Probationary Constables Smith and Inskip to Dubbo Police Station and Probationary Constable McDonald to Wellington Police Station.
“Being a police officer is a challenging job at the best of times, and in recent years they’ve really gone above and beyond in service of their communities,” Mr Saunders said.
“I am delighted to welcome our newest police officers to Dubbo and Wellington, and commend them for choosing to serve our communities.
“For these probationary constables, Monday marked day one of a challenging and rewarding career keeping our communities safe.
“Policing is like no other profession; it is a selfless career where officers run towards danger to protect us and the wider community rather than the natural instinct to run in the opposite direction,” Mr Saunders said.
“We all thank them for this service and their commitment to the people of NSW.”
The recruits have completed eight months of foundational training and those allocated to commands within Dubbo and Wellington reported to their stations on Monday 21 August 2023.
