Six new Police Officers report for duty

Six new Probationary Constables will commence duties in the Brisbane Water Police District today after being sworn in at a private attestation ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy last Friday.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch welcomed the new recruits to the Central Coast.

“Our six new Police officers are a much-needed boost to the Central Coast and will greatly help us as a community as we continue to face the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mr Crouch said.

“This new allocation of Police officers to the Brisbane Water Police District also builds on the allocation of six officers to the Tuggerah Lakes Police District in August.

“Police put their own safety on the line to protect others every day, and I commend these new Probationary Constables for their dedication to community safety.”

Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott congratulated the recruits on their dedication and hard work as they embarked on their chosen career in Policing.

“Our 192 recruits of Class 343 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.”

Class 343 includes 130 men and 62 women, and includes recruits from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Each recruit has completed eight months of foundational training at the Goulburn Police Academy and the six allocated to the Brisbane Water Police District will report to Gosford Station for the first time today.

Last year, the NSW Government announced an investment of $583 million to introduce 1,500 extra Police over four years to enhance community safety across NSW.
