A fresh batch of probationary constables will join the ranks of NSW Police following an attestation parade on Friday.
A total 257 probationary constables will attest from the NSW Police Academy.
‘Class 335’ includes 168 policemen and 89 policewomen who will complete 12 months on-the-job training and study of the Associate Degree in Policing Practice by distance education with Charles Sturt University before being confirmed as constables.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller APM will be joined by the Governor of NSW, His Excellency General, The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret’d) and Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Troy Grant MP, to inspect the new recruits on the parade ground. Goulburn MP Pru Goward will also attend.
The ceremony will also see retiring officers Detective Superintendent Arthur Katsogiannis APM, Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Hoffman, Chief Inspector Trent Le-Merton and Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen Horn, farewelled after 161 years combined service with the NSW Police Force.
Larger classes are expected at the Academy next year on the back of the State Government’s announcement of a further 1500 police in NSW.
Friday’s ceremony starts at 9am and traffic management will be in place.
