Hawkesbury local area command has welcomed two new officers, fresh from eight months of foundational training at the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn.

Probationary Constables Joshua and Alexandra were members of Class 345, which included 139 men and 55 women.

Some of the recruits entered the academy directly from school or university, while others left established careers. This included former teachers, ambulance officers and even a jockey.

Class 345 was the first to receive a full official attestation ceremony at the academy after last year’s were disrupted by COVID-19 restrictions.

Police and Emergency Services Minister David Elliott joined NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller at the ceremony.

“Over the course of last year, we have seen first-hand the crucial role our police officers play in protecting the community and we owe them a debt of gratitude for their efforts,” Mr Elliott said.

“These officers will join a NSW Police Force that has been strengthened by investment from the NSW Government, including the delivery of 1500 additional officers over four years and the commitment to a $60 million upgrade to Goulburn Police Academy.”

Hawkesbury MP Robyn Preston welcomed the new officers to the region.

“Our new police officers have chosen a career of service and will be a vital asset to the people of Hawkesbury,” she said.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the new officers for their contribution and congratulate them on the start of their exciting careers.”
