Central West Police District will welcome two new probationary constables out of almost 200 sworn in at the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn on Friday, with 10 others also allocated to the western region's Chifley and Orana PDs.
The NSW Police Force welcomed 192 new probationary constables on Friday afternoon, with Class 347 now set to take on a year of on-the-job training and complete an Associate Degree in Policing, by distance, at Charles Sturt University.
They'll begin their new careers as cops on Monday and will be confirmed to the rank of constable once their training is complete.
"Our newest recruits will be a valuable addition to our policing capabilities across the state," NSW Police Force Commissioner Mick Fuller APM said.
"As they begin at their new stations from Monday, I am confident they will step up to the challenges faced by our officers every day and play a vital role in keeping NSW safe as we enter the second half of 2021.
"A career in the police force offers many opportunities and rewards, so I want to encourage our newest officers to enjoy and be proud of the crucial role they play in our communities."
The newest recruits were congratulated by Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott.
"Joining the NSW Police Force is a proud moment and represents the start of what I hope will be a long and successful career for all of our recruits," Mr Elliott said.
"Class 347 has the full support of the NSW Government and we wish them well as they step into their duties to uphold the law and serve and protect the community."
Education and Training Commander, Assistant Commissioner Peter Barrie, acknowledged the hard work of Class 347 and congratulated them on their attestation.
"After eight months of preparation and commitment, this ceremony marks the day our recruits become police officers - a significant milestone for them and their families," Assistant Commissioner Barrie said.
