Baulkham Hills will be a safer place with the addition of five new police officers, after they attested at a private ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy today.
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP and Minister for Police David Elliott congratulated the new recruits on their dedication and hard work as they embarked on their chosen career in policing.
“Our recruits of Class 342 come at an important time for the state of NSW. I wish them well as they embark on their chosen career,” Mr Elliott said.
“These officers can be assured that they have the full support of this government as they step into their career in law enforcement and service to the community.”
Police Commissioner Mick Fuller APM said the latest intake of probationary constables will provide a valuable and timely boost to police resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our newest probationary constables from Class 342 leave the Academy during unprecedented times, they will face challenges in their first few months that I won’t have experienced when I joined,” he said.
Mr Elliott welcomed the recruits to Baulkham Hills,after more than eight months of world-class training at the academy.
“Our new police officers are a much needed boost to the Baulkham Hills community and they will be a great help us as we continue to face the COVID-19 crisis,” Mr Elliott said.
“On behalf of the community, I am pleased to welcome these officers to their new command. Police put their own safety on the line to protect our community every day, and I commend these new officers for their dedication and wish them every success in their policing careers.”
“The NSW Liberals & Nationals are investing $583 million in 1500 extra officers over the next four years, the biggest increase in three decades.”
