Four new probationary constables will start duties in Coffs/Clarence Police District after new officers attested at a formal ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy today.

Class 362 comprised 169 new probationary constables including 122 men and 47 women. Eight of the recruits will receive awards for outstanding academic, physical, marksmanship and practical policing achievements.

Member for Coffs Harbour and Deputy Leader of the NSW Nationals, Gurmesh Singh, welcomes the new police officers to the Coffs Coast.

“I’m extremely pleased these new recruits will be making themselves home right here on the Coffs Coast,” Mr Singh said.

“They join an outstanding team at Coffs/Clarence Police District and I wish them every success in their new careers.

“Their commitment to fostering a safe and thriving environment is invaluable, and we want each and every officer to know their efforts are deeply appreciated.

“These probationary constables are helping strengthen the ranks of our modern and world-class NSW Police Force.”

The recruits will report to their stations from Monday 24 June to complete 12 months’ on-the-job training and study by distance education with Charles Sturt University.
