Three new probationary constables have joined the ranks of the Orana Mid-Western Police District (OMWPD) this week, helping keep our community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new recruits were sworn in at an attestation parade in Goulburn on Friday, and then got straight to work at the Dubbo Police Station on Monday.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders welcomed the new officers to the Dubbo region.
“Being a police officer is a challenging job at the best of times – but never have police played a bigger role in protecting and serving our communities than during the local COVID outbreak of the last couple of months,” Mr Saunders said.
“NSW Police have been instrumental in helping those suffering with COVID-19 to isolate with wellbeing checks and deliveries, as well as the vaccine rollout in partnership with health and the Australian Defence Force.
“I am delighted to welcome our newest police officers to the Dubbo community.”
Acting Superintendent Natalie Antaw said she is very proud to welcome the three new probationary constables to the OMWPD.
“These new officers will be great asset to Dubbo Police Station and community and I commend them for choosing a career path that will not only challenge them but create some of their fondest memories,” Acting Superintendent Antaw said.
“A career with the NSWPF offers great diversity and rewards, and I look forward to watching each of them develop and grow into well-equipped police officers.”
The recruits have completed eight months of foundational training and those allocated to commands within Dubbo will report to their stations from Monday 11 October 2021.
