Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith welcomes the announcement that 269 new recruits join the NSW Police Force following an attestation ceremony in Goulbourn last Friday.

“I offer my congratulations the new recruits on attesting from the academy after more than eight months of world-class training and look forward to welcoming 13 of them to the Nepean and Blue Mountains Area Commands,” said Stuart Ayres.

“Penrith is in safer hands with more officers joining the ranks today,” Stuart Ayres said.

“I wish them every success in their policing careers. Being sworn in as a police officer is a great honour and I commend these new recruits for making the brave decision to put the community’s safety ahead of their own.”

A total of 269 students attested today in front of family, friends and other dignitaries, including 177 men and 92 women. Twenty-nine recruits were born overseas in countries including Iraq, Croatia and Wales.

Nineteen of the new recruits are from an Indigenous background, including five who have come through the Indigenous Police Recruitment Our Way Delivery (IPROWD) Program to boost Aboriginal Australians in the NSW Police Force.

Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott said the State would be a safer place with the new recruits assigned to local Police Area Commands across NSW.

“I want to welcome each and every attesting recruit to the police family, and pay particular mention to the nineteen Indigenous new recruits who will become strong leaders in their communities,” Mr Elliott said.

NSW Police Force Commissioner Mick Fuller said the attestation was an important milestone for recruits.

“Today is a day to celebrate. Our newest recruits have worked extremely hard to be standing on the parade ground,” Commissioner Fuller said.

“Next week they will discover the great sense of pride and responsibility that comes from donning the blue uniform. I welcome them to the NSW Police Force.”
