Member for Albury Justin Clancy today welcomed the announcement that there will be 3 new police officers on the beat in the Albury Electorate following an attestation ceremony in Goulburn today.
Mr Clancy congratulated the new recruits on attesting from the academy after more than eight months of world-class training.
“I am proud to welcome these men and women and wish them every success in their policing careers. Being sworn in as a police officer is a great honour and I commend these new recruits for making the brave decision to put the community’s safety ahead of their own” Mr Clancy said.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian joined Minister for Police David Elliott, Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman, Police Commissioner Mick Fuller AMP and NSW Governor the Honourable Margaret Beazley for the attestation parade in Goulburn this morning, where class 337 took their oath.
“Our frontline police officers put their lives on the line day in and day out to protect the community,” Ms Berejiklian said. “The NSW Government is committed to recruiting more police officers across NSW to keep our communities safe.
“Congratulations to all the new police officers who graduated today and will now embark on their important and rewarding careers.”
Mr Elliott said we owe every police officer a great debt of gratitude for the work they do.
“Our state has some of the lowest crime rates in a generation and that is testament to the people like the officers here today who have completed world class training,” Mr Elliott said.
The new recruits will attest with the rank of probationary constable and report to their new stations for work on Monday, 6 May 2019.
