FOUR new police will be welcomed to departments across the New England and Oxley.
The new recruits are part of the graduating class of 159 probationary constables that will join the ranks of the NSW Police Force.
The brave men and women have completed their training during extraordinary times, Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliot said.
"These recruits join the strong police family of more than 17,000 officers at a significant time as state continues to face a global pandemic," Mr Elliott said.
"I wish every single recruit my best wishes as they take their oath to proudly serve the community in what will be a rewarding yet challenging career.
"We owe each of them the greatest amount of respect and gratitude for their commitment to put themselves in harm's way to keep us safe."
The new class was made up of 42 females and 117 males, with 41.5 per cent aged between 21 and 25 and six were 40 and above.
The NSW Government has invested $583 million to introduce 1,500 extra police over the next four years.
