NSW Nationals Deputy Leader and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole has welcomed four new Probationary Constables to his region.

The new recruits will be based out of the Chifley Police District and were the stars at a special morning tea to mark the important occasion.

Mr Toole said community safety was one of his highest priorities and that the region would be a safer place thanks to these new recruits.

NSW Police Force Commissioner Mick Fuller said last week’s attestation was an important milestone for recruits.

“Last week’s ceremony was a day for celebration. Our newest recruits worked extremely hard to be standing on the parade ground,” Commissioner Fuller said. “This week they are discovering the great sense of pride and responsibility that comes from donning the blue uniform. I welcome them to the NSW Police Force.”

Mr Toole congratulated the four new local recruits on attesting from the academy after more than eight months of world-class training.

“The local community is in safer hands with more officers joining the ranks today,” Mr Toole said.
