JOINT MEDIA RELEASE - NEW POLICE RECRUITS FOR GREATER BLACKTOWN REGION
Written on the 21 August 2017 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly and Member for Seven Hills Mark Taylor announced jointly today that 11 new Probationary Constables have joined Quakers Hill (2), Blacktown (5) and Mount Druitt (4) Local Area Commands.
They all graduated last week from Goulburn Police Academy alongside 215 other NSW Police recruits from Class 331.
"On behalf of the community I thank our newest graduates for their commitment to combating crime and dedicating their careers to protecting our community," Mr Conolly said.
The probationary constables have commenced on-the-job training and will continue distance learning before graduating with an Associate Diploma in Policing Practice.
"I would like to welcome our newest officers to the region, and extend our gratitude to them for devoting their careers to such an honourable cause," Mr Taylor said.
Minister for Police Troy Grant said the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has undertaken to boost frontline police numbers across the State.
"The men and women who graduated last week from Class 331 brings the number of individuals who have become sworn NSW Police officers since 2011 to 4,163," said Mr Grant.
The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is committed to boosting the authorised strength of the NSW Police to 16,795 over this term of Government.
