New Police recruits hit the beat
Member for Nudgee Leanne Linard has welcomed new police officers to Boondall Police Station following their graduation from the prestigious Queensland Police Academy at Oxley.
The recruit training program delivers the foundation necessary for First Year Constables to begin effective operational policing.
Ms Linard said the new First Year Constables had completed intensive training, preparing them for their new roles serving the local community.
“On behalf of the Palaszczuk Government, I am grateful to the First Year Constables who have accepted this responsibility,” s/he said.
“Each has sworn they will maintain integrity, professionalism and accountability when serving and protecting the people of Queensland.
“Queenslanders should feel confident these standards will be met.”
Ms Linard said the First Year Constables performed a vital role boosting community safety.
“They will help to create a safe environment for residents and visitors, working in partnership with their communities and other government agencies around Queensland,” she said.
“First Year Constables breathe new life into the Service with their unique experiences and enthusiasm.
“I would like to acknowledge the world-class education and support services provided by the QPS People Capability Command and wish our new first year constables all the very best as they embark on their new careers.”
Minister for Police Mark Ryan said the job the new recruits had been sworn into was unlike any other job.
“I thank them for taking on this responsibility and wish them well in their chosen career.”
