Six recent recruits for the Central West Police District will boost numbers to allow for an extra patrol car on the streets of Orange from October.
Four female and two male probationary constables, who graduated from the Police Academy in Goulburn on Friday, will begin their careers in the region this week.
Five of the graduates have started General Duties positions in Orange, with the sixth officer set to perform the same role at Forbes.
The recruits will boost the number of General Duties police to 70 officers, who work alongside detectives, the crime prevention unit and target action groups in Orange.
Superintendent Chris Taylor said police numbers had been under a bit of pressure in Orange and the Commissioner of the NSW Police Force, Mick Fuller, had taken note.
Superintendent Taylor said Orange police patrol was given an initial boost in May, when it was provided the resources to run another car each shift, and the five graduates would allow for a second additional car.
The six graduates, who've come from Boree Creek, Sydney, Bathurst and Glenfield, are part of a group of 34 probationary constables allocated to the Western Region.
The allocation of additional police to the Western Region is the NSW Government's biggest investment in new police positions for the NSW Police Force in 30 years.
In addition to the graduates, Orange instated two senior constables relocated here from Bourke and an Aboriginal Community Liaison Officer from Bathurst.
Zac Merritt will fill the liaison position which became available after the resignation of the previous officer earlier in the year.
Mr Merritt has experience working with Bathurst High School, Kelso High School and Canobolas Rural Technology High School.
He will work with Orange police to foster relationships with the Aboriginal community.
He said part of that is keeping school students "on the right path."
"It's about teaching people we've got to trust the police," Mr Merritt said.
"They're not just out there to put them away."
