Coffs/Clarence to receive two new probationary constables
A TOTAL of 131 new probationary constables will have their first day on the job with the NSW Police Force today, including two in the Coffs/Clarence region.
Last Friday, the students attested with the rank of probationary constable and reported to their new stations for work this morning.
They will now complete 12 months on-the-job training and study by distance education with Charles Sturt University before they officially graduate with an Associate Degree in Policing Practice. The officers will then be confirmed to the rank of constable.
Commissioner Scipione said the new recruits were about to embark on a highly diverse and rewarding career path.
"Policing is a highly unique career path that will offer these new probationary constables various exciting opportunities each day they work with and for the community," Commissioner Scipione said.
"Their experiences will be both challenging and gratifying, but their presence here today shows they have the resilience and determination to succeed and represent the NSW Police Force proudly.
"I wish each and every student all the best in their policing futures and I hope they find the experience of serving the community as rewarding as I do."
