Tasmania police will welcome 19 new officers to their ranks today following the latest round of graduations.
The 12 men and 7 women will now take up their posts at stations in Hobart, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie.
With an important task at hand, these new officers will put their training into action and begin serving and protecting the Tasmanian community from next week.
In our last term, the Hodgman Liberal Government rebuilt police numbers to 1,233 after the Labor-Green Government sacked more than 100 officers.
Now, we have our sights on making Tasmania a safer place to live by recruiting a further 125 new front line police officers over the next four years.
Recruiting is ongoing for the next scheduled courses which start later this year, and I would urge anyone considering a rewarding career in policing to visit the Tasmanian Police website.
The Hodgman Liberal Government proudly welcomes these new Constables to the ranks and wish them all the best as they forge their own paths within the Tasmanian Police Service.
