Richie Williamson welcomes Superintendent Joanne Schultz and Inspector Sally Scott.
Clarence Nationals MP Richie Williamson says two new senior police officers who have arrived in the region deserve the warmest of Clarence Valley welcomes.
“Superintendent Joanne Schultz took over from Superintendent Steve Clarke last year as Commander of the Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command, and by all accounts has hit the ground running,” Mr Williamson said.
“NSW Police have also allocated a second inspector for our area, joining Inspector Richard Garrels. Inspector Sally Scott has just started and is tasked with looking after the lower river part of the Clarence Valley.”
Mr Williamson said the promotion of women to senior roles in the NSW Police Force made the community stronger, fairer, and safer.
“This has been a welcome and growing trend since the appointment of the first female Commissioner of the NSW Police Force, Karen Webb APM, under the previous Nationals Government,” Mr Williamson said.
“I really encourage girls and women from the Richmond and Clarence Valleys to look into a rewarding career with one of the world’s largest police forces.
“Head on over to www.police.nsw.gov.au/recruitment. You may be pleasantly surprised,” Mr Williamson said.
