The Queensland Police Service has welcomed 82 recruits, with 9 officers coming to the Gold Coast as the Newman Government continues delivering on its election promise to revitalise frontline services.

Member for Currumbin, Jann Stuckey MP said the new First Year Constables would be an invaluable resource to the Currumbin community and provide a visual example of the Government’s commitment to a safer community.

“At the election, the Newman Government promised to deliver 1,100 officers over four years, and we have delivered more than 700 officers already,” Ms Stuckey said.

“This Government promised at the last election to make Queensland the safest place to raise a family in Australia, and having more police on the beat delivers on this commitment.

“These new officers have completed 25 weeks of rigorous training in order to prepare them to protect and serve our community when required.

“I know our community will be well served by the additional officers, who will be part of proactive policing operations.

“Following the graduation today, the officers will begin arriving in communities and stations within the coming weeks.

“On behalf of the residents of Currumbin I wish to extend the warmest of welcomes to the new officers as they start their careers in our community.”
