2 new police recruits in Gladstone

Two of Queensland Police Service’s newest recruits will be based in Gladstone. They are among 58 First Year Constables (FYC), to graduate from the Queensland Police Academy this week.

Each recruit has completed 25 weeks of intensive training, so that they can provide excellent service to the community and ensuring their policing skills have developed to a level necessary for operational policing as First Year Constables under supervision,” Mr Butcher member for Gladstone said.

‘Like the rest of Queensland, our community’s expectation of a police officer is one of impeccable integrity, professionalism and accountability and I have no doubt our new officers will uphold these traits while working hard to ensure our communities are kept safe.’’

Minister for Police Bill Byrne said the First Year Constables should be commended for taking on the role of protecting our communities.
