….. the best part of my job.

The NSW Police Force has welcomed 192 new probationary constables after they were sworn in at the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn today.

Family and friends were able to watch on as Class 347 attested in a full ceremony that featured the Police Band, Pipe Band, Mounted Unit and VIP cycles.

Class 347 includes 137 men and 55 women who will undertake a year of on-the-job training and complete the Associate Degree in Policing Practice by distance education with Charles Sturt University before being confirmed to the rank of constable.

The newest recruits were congratulated by Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott in Goulburn.
