Three new police officers on the Beat


Families can feel safer and better protected with three new officers being sent to the area as part of the Government’s strong plan for a brighter future for communities across Queensland.


Member for Pine Rivers, Seath Holswich said the new officers would be an invaluable resource to the Pine Rivers community.


“At the election, the Newman Government promised to deliver 1,100 officers statewide over four years, and we have delivered more than 750 officers already.” he said


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


Inspector Glenn Morris from Petrie Police Station formally welcomed with three officers today.


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


“They have been allocated positions at Petrie, North Lakes and Albany Creek” he said.


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


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


All three new Constables start work tomorrow at their respective Stations.
