Northern Beaches Police Area Command has welcomed a new batch of recruits.

Four probationary constables were sworn in Friday morning with the rest of their class in a COVID-19 compliant ceremony at the Goulburn Police Academy.

By afternoon they arrived at Northern Beaches Police Area Command to become familiar with their new location before their official start on Monday.

The new recruits will undertake 12 months of on-the-job training as they complete their Associate Degree in Policing Practice.

Once completed, if they also meet rigorous operational standards, they will be confirmed to the rank of constable.

Northern Beaches Advocate welcomes the new members of NSW Police to our community.
