14 to graduate at Joondalup Police Academy today

FOURTEEN police auxiliary officers will join WA Police when they graduate at Joondalup Police Academy today.

The graduates have completed eight weeks of intensive in-house training, followed by on-the job training designed to equip them for their roles.

Their work will complement that carried out by police, by performing essential behind-the-scenes tasks to enable officers to be released to frontline duties.

The average age of the graduates is 27 and they have a range of skills and abilities.

Today’s ceremony marks the first graduation of auxiliary officers for 2016.

Present at the ceremony will be acting WA Police Commissioner Gary Dreibergs.
