Nine new police officers are officially on the job across the Coast’s two Police Districts.
The new recruits were welcomed to their new beats after an attestation ceremony on August 23, with Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, congratulating them on the completion of eight months’ of world class training.
“Our community is in safer hands today with four new officers for Brisbane Water Police District and five for Tuggerah Lakes Police District,” Crouch said.
“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,” he added.
Minister for Police and Emergency Services, David Elliott, said the State would be a safer place with the new recruits assigned to local Police Area Commands across NSW.
“I want to welcome each and every attesting recruit to the police family and pay particular mention to the 19 Indigenous new recruits who will become strong leaders in their communities,” Elliott said.
NSW Police Force Commissioner, Mick Fuller, said the attestation was an important milestone for recruits.
“Today is a day to celebrate.
“Our newest recruits have worked extremely hard to be standing on the parade ground,” Commissioner Fuller said.
“Next week they will discover the great sense of pride and responsibility that comes from donning the blue uniform.
“I welcome them to the NSW Police Force,” he said.
