Today I and Yvette D’Ath, Member for Redcliffe have welcomed the new that four first year police constables are being assigned to local stations, part of the 266 additional police that the Palaszczuk Government is delivering this financial year.
Three new officers will commence at Redcliffe station and one officer at Deception Bay station, part of nine new officers joining the Moreton Bay Police District. The officers were among 84 recruits sworn into service on Thursday 17 March.
Ms D’Ath commended the First Year Constables for taking on the role of protecting her local community.
“These officers will gain valuable experience at Redcliffe and Murrumba stations, as well as other areas across the Moreton District.”
“Each recruit has completed 25 weeks of intensive training, ensuring their policing skills have developed to a level necessary for operational policing as First Year Constables under supervision.”
These recruits bring a wide blend of qualifications and life experience to the job.
Each recruit has sworn to maintain integrity, professionalism and accountability when serving and protecting the people of Queensland. Queenslanders should feel confident that these standards will be met.
I’m very pleased to welcome these new officers to our area. I can assure these recruits and our serving officers alike that our Government will give them the support they need to keep Queenslanders safe.
