Three new probationary constables have commenced duties in the Orana Mid-Western Police District this week, after they attested at a formal ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy last Friday.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said two of the new officers will be based at Dubbo, while the third will go on to be based at Warren.
“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.
“NSW Police were instrumental in checking the wellbeing of COVID sufferers during our local outbreak, and more recently we’ve seen them carrying out flood rescues in the north of our state.
“I am delighted to welcome our newest police officers to Dubbo, and commend them for choosing to serve our community.”
“For these probationary constables, Monday marked day one of a challenging and rewarding career keeping our communities safe,” Mr Toole said.
“They will join almost 18,000 other men and women in blue working as part of a world-class modern police force to drive down crime rates and protect the community.
“NSW Police is actively recruiting as part of its ‘You should be a cop’ campaign and I encourage anyone looking for new opportunities to give it a go.”
In 2019 the NSW Government announced the delivery of 1,500 additional police positions over four years. All of these positions have now been allocated and will be filled by the end of the financial year.
Class 354 includes 104 men and 50 women from all ages, backgrounds and regions across the State and country.
