The Riverina Police District will gain six more officers following the latest attestation at the Police Academy in Goulburn today.
They form part of the 257 new probationary constables across the state.
Elsewhere in the southern region, the Murrumbidgee gains three, while the Murrary River and Monaro receives one each.
Class 335 includes 168 policemen and 89 policewomen who will complete 12 months on-the-job training and study of the Associate Degree in Policing Practice by distance education with Charles Sturt University before being confirmed to the rank of constable.
Commissioner Mick Fuller said it was “a huge milestone for the recruits who have worked extremely hard over the past eight months”.
“We welcome more than 250 new recruits to the ranks of the NSW Police Force, where they will be tested with new challenges every day,” Commissioner Fuller said.
“They have already proven themselves physically and academically to reach this point and from Monday they will experience the reward of serving the community as a police officer.
“For the next 12 month, they will continue to study and learn what it truly means to wear the uniform at Police Area Commands and Police Districts across the state.”
The students will attest with the rank of probationary constable and report to their new stations for work on December 10 this year.
