New Police Officers Inducted at Oxley Campus, to Be Deployed Across Queensland

Seventeen of the 75 new police officers that were inducted on 15 May 2019 at the QPS Academy, Oxley campus will be deployed to the Brisbane Region, including the Mt Ommaney and Inala stations.

Minister for Police and Minister for Corrective Services, the Honourable Mark Ryan MP, and Commissioner Ian Stewart were in attendance during the induction ceremony that welcomed 75 First Year Constables (FYC) who completed 25 weeks of intensive training.

“On behalf of the Queensland Government, I am grateful to the 75 FYCs who have accepted this responsibility today,” Minister Ryan said.

“Each has sworn they will maintain integrity, professionalism and accountability when serving and protecting the people of Queensland. Queenslanders should feel confident these standards will be met.

“They will help to create a safe environment for residents and visitors, working in partnership with their communities and other government agencies around Queensland.

“First Year Constables breathe new life into the Service with their unique experiences and enthusiasm. I would like to acknowledge the education and support services provided by the QPS People Capability Command and wish the 75 FYCs good luck as they embark on their new careers,” he said.

Commissioner Stewart announced that the new officers will be allocated to the Brisbane Region (17), South Eastern Region (16 ), Central Region (21), Northern Region (1), and to the Southern Region (20). This is Commissioner Stewart’s last induction with the QPS.

“I remember my induction well and I hope this afternoon’s ceremony is a memory each FYC carries with them throughout a successful career in the QPS,” Commissioner Stewart said.

“The role of a police officer is like no other – responsible for the safety and security of Queensland. There is no doubt each of these new officers will experience some challenging situations, however, there will also be many rewarding and humbling times.

“I wish luck to every officer in their career and feel confident they will uphold the values expected of a police officer in Queensland.”

Another class of recruits from the Townsville Police Academy will be graduating soon to help reinforce QPS resources in the state’s north and northwest side.
