“Police put their lives on the line every day to protect our community and I thank and congratulate each and every one of these officers for choosing to join the Force, I wish them all a long and successful career.”
The recruits have completed eight months of foundational training and those allocated to commands within the Hume Police District will report to their stations from Monday, December 7.
