New Police Recruits Welcomed to Barwon
Member for Barwon Kevin Humphries today welcomed five officers to the Barwon electorate as part of 131 new recruits joining the NSW Police Force from “Class 325”.
“Policing is a challenging front line career requiring officers to use their initiative in a rapidly changing world and in vastly contrasting environments,” Mr Humphries said.
“I wish our new recruits the very best after months of training to join our force of an authorised strength of 16,695, including 859 since 2011.”
Mr Humphries said Narrabri, Walgett and Bourke police stations will each take on one new recruit, while Broken Hill will receive two recruits.
“The NSW Government recognises the efforts and sacrifices our police officers make and are committed to providing the resources and technology they need to make our electorate a safe place,” he said.
“The Barwon electorate will welcome our newest members of the force with open arms – not only for their service in protecting the region but as an addition to our growing community.
“I thank all of our police for their hard work protecting our community and congratulate our latest probationary constables on graduating from the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn and starting their policing career.”
