28 new police officers join the ranks

7 August 2014

New recruits were welcomed to the force by Assistant Chief Constable Paul Kennedy at a passing out ceremony held at police headquarters on Friday 1 August 2014.

The new officers have successfully completed an intensive 18-week, initial training course which includes law, personal safety, search techniques, public order, first aid and a local community placement, all designed to prepare them for life on the beat.

The officers also undertook a considerable amount of home study as part the course to qualify for the Certificate of Knowledge in Policing.

ACC Kennedy, said: It gives me great pleasure to welcome the new officers to North Yorkshire Police.

They have worked very hard throughout their initial training and can now look forward to a challenging but rewarding career serving the communities of North Yorkshire. I am sure each and every one of them will be an asset to the service and the communities which they will serve.

This brings the total number of new recruits to North Yorkshire Police to 69 this year which is great news for North Yorkshire Police and our communities.

The new officers have a variety of backgrounds including the private sector, education, health, the fire service and many have worked for the police service as Community Support Officers, Police Staff or Special Constables.
