Fresh meat for the force

By johnboy 31 May 2013 4

AFP Commissioner Tony Negus and Acting Chief Police Officer for the ACT David Pryce have sworn in 17 men and seven women to the ranks of ACT Policing at an attestation ceremony held at the AFP College in Barton this morning (Friday 31 May).

The new officers have undergone 26 weeks of intensive training to prepare them for the challenges that lie ahead as a police officer in the ACT.

The 24 new probationary Constables bring a variety of skills and knowledge to ACT Policing. Tertiary backgrounds such as Business Administration, Sport and Exercise Science, IT and Economics are coupled with vocational skills from such areas as retail, carpentry, life-saving and education. Three of the recruits are multi-lingual.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Pryce believes the new constables will bring enthusiasm and a strong knowledge base to the ACT Policing ranks.

“These officers have undergone a comprehensive 26-week program of training here at the AFP College in Canberra to prepare them for their new roles as police officers.”

“Coupled with their life experiences and varied backgrounds, I’m confident they will all make excellent additions to both ACT Policing and our community”, Acting Assistant Commissioner Pryce said.

The recruits will initially spend two weeks performing duties in Traffic Operations, before being assigned to their designated stations throughout the ACT.

I sometimes think that being a cop would be an interesting and rewarding job. Then I remember all the conversations I have had about the job with cops. Some how, the me, all the really shite things they have to deal with seem to out weigh the potentially rewarding things 10:1.

I wish these guys an’ girls the best of luck.
