81 police recruits graduate as First Year Constables in Oxley

Published:

Minister for Police Mark Ryan and Commissioner Katarina Carroll today joined in welcoming 81 new recruits to the Queensland Police Service (QPS).

Minister Ryan congratulated the First Year Constables (FYCs) on their graduation from the Oxley Police Academy.

“These FYCs are beginning their careers during unprecedented times, when the role of our police is more important than ever,” he said.

“Our Police Academies produce the finest officers in the world, and I know these recruits have received the intensive training they need to keep us safe.

“Each has sworn they will maintain integrity, professionalism and accountability when serving and protecting the people of Queensland.

“I congratulate these officers as they embark on careers with the Queensland Police Service.”

Minister Ryan said the graduation was the first full induction ceremony since January.

“In March, Commissioner Carroll made the decision to fast-track police graduations,” he said.

“This decision was made to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the Academies, and immediately boost the number of frontline officers.

“Social distancing requirements have prevented graduates from celebrating with a full ceremony, with QPS instead opting for a small, private swearing-in.

“I’m very pleased this latest cohort will have their achievements recognised in a full induction ceremony.”

Commissioner Carroll said the FYCs came from diverse backgrounds, bringing a range of skills to ensure they provide Queenslanders with exceptional service across a variety of circumstances.

“We have a diverse group of graduates representative of our community who bring skills and experience from a wide range of previous careers.,” Commissioner Carroll said.

“The training program these recruits have completed prepares them for a range of policing scenarios, and they will continue to learn on the job through the First Year Constable program.

“These graduates have demonstrated outstanding commitment and skill in preparing for today.

“They are taking the next step in their policing career, and I have no doubt they are well-prepared for the challenges they will face in the future.

“All the new constables can be proud of their achievements, and it is wonderful to be with them today to celebrate their hard work.”
