The Hills Police Area Command (PAC) has welcomed three new police officers at a special ceremony paying tribute to the ‘Classes of 2020’, who joined the Police Force to protect our State during the catastrophic bush fire season and at the height of the global pandemic.
The NSW Police Force Attestation Parade was held at the Sydney Cricket Ground today to officially welcome four classes of graduating officers in front of friends and family members.
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott and Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott welcomed the new recruits and said the NSW Government is committed to supporting them throughout their careers.
“Our Police cadets have faced exceptional challenges this year, but they have shown they can overcome difficult circumstances to complete their training, and they will now use the same resilience to push them forward in their new careers,” Mr Elliott said.
“Police put their lives on the line every day to protect our community and I thank and congratulate each and every one of these officers for choosing to join the Force, I wish them all a long and successful career.”
Mr Elliott welcomed the recruits to The Hills PAC.
“The Hills PAC has been lucky to welcome 21 new recruits this year, including three in the most recent attestation, who have been a boost to public safety during a time when they have been most needed,” Mr Elliott said.
“I am pleased to welcome these officers to their new command and congratulate them on completing their training during unusual circumstance.”
The NSW Government has already committed $583 million to introduce 1500 extra Police over four years and recently announced a $60 million upgrade to Goulburn Police Academy.
The recruits have completed eight months of foundational training and those allocated to commands within The Hills will report to their stations from Monday, 7 December 2020.
