Today six new probationary constables have commences duties in Heathcote after they were sworn in at an attestation ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy last week.

Four new recruits have joined Sutherland Police Area Command (PAC) and two new recruits have joined Wollongong Police District (PD).

Congratulations to the new police recruits on commencing their duties, after eight months of world-class training. I wish them all the best in their career in policing and thank them for keeping our community safe.

The NSW Government announced in 2019 the delivery of 1500 additional officers over four years to enhance community safety across NSW.

Class 351 includes 133 men and 60 women. Some recruits entered the NSW Police Academy straight from school or university, while others left established professional careers and trades.


Welcoming the new police recruits at Sutherland PAC.
