Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today welcomed the new probationary constables to Nepean Police Area Command after they attested at a formal ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy on Friday 14 October 2022.
“Our new police officers have chosen a career of service and will be a vital asset to the people of Penrith,” Stuart Ayres said.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the new officers for their contribution and congratulate them on the start of their exciting careers.”
“As the probationary Class of 355 hit the ground running, they have the full support of our Government behind them,” Mr Toole said.
“They are to be commended for pursuing a career in policing where they will make a real difference while protecting and serving our communities.
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 355 is made up of 145 recruits, including 94 men and 51 women from various backgrounds and regions across the State and country.
