One new probationary constable will commence duties in the Manning-Great Lakes Police District after new officers attested at a formal ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy on Friday, 21 June.

Class 362 comprised of 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 Myall Lakes, Tanya Thompson welcomed the new police officer to the Myall Lakes.

“I am delighted to welcome this new probationary constable to our Taree police station,” said Mrs Thompson. “This addition strengthens our police force, and I look forward to the positive impact they will make.”

Shadow Minister for Police Paul Toole shared his welcome to the enthusiastic new recruits who come from diverse backgrounds and professional experience.

“I am proud to welcome the new recruits into the NSW Police Force, who have taken up the incredibly challenging but rewarding responsibility of serving and protecting the people of NSW,” Mr Toole said.

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

“Policing is like no other profession; it is a selfless career where officers run towards danger to protect us and the wider community rather than the natural instinct to run in the opposite direction.

The recruits have completed eight months of foundational training and those allocated to commands will report to their stations from Monday 24 June 2024 to complete 12 months’ on-the-job training and study by distance education with Charles Sturt University.
