Police Recruit Training, Group 523 – Update 5: The training program at the police academy not only educates recruits on laws and policy matters. It also assists in the development of their knowledge and skills to enable them to carry out specific police related roles such as tactical skills, officer safety, firearms, use of police computer systems and to operate police vehicles.
Graduating as First Year Constables (FYC), the 71 recruits completed the 25 week Recruit Training Program. The program aims to provide recruits with a quality foundation so that they can provide excellent service to the community and ensuring their policing skills have developed to a level necessary for operational policing as First Year Constables under supervision.
Police Recruit Training, Group 523 – Update 7: Recruit Group 523 has been together for 23 weeks now. Their educational facilitators noted strong camaraderie amongst the group and recognise the positive influence of peer support.
