New cops swell in Rockhampton

ROCKHAMPTON’S police numbers have been given a boost with the appointment of five new officers to the city.

Acting Police Minister Andrew Fraser and Acting Police Commissioner Kathy Rynders announced the boost at a weekend ceremony in Brisbane where 92 new officers graduated.

“The new officers will assist in upholding community safety,” Mr Fraser said.

“These graduates are part of the Bligh Government’s commitment to increasing police numbers across the state and providing 600 new officers in this term of government.

“All Queenslanders should feel proud of the calibre of the men and women who police our community and these newest graduating constables are no exception.”

Acting Commissioner Rynders said the new constables came from a variety of backgrounds including education, professionals, trades, hospitality, human resources and administration.

“These individuals have embarked on and succeeded in the training which is required to become a police officer,” Acting Commissioner Rynders said.
