Gwent Police welcomes 47 new officers

21st March 2023

This week I was honoured to be invited to the passing out parade for 47 new police officers.

The new recruits have completed their qualifications and training through the policing education qualifications framework and will now be deployed with policing teams across Gwent’s five counties.

When I was elected in 2016 I committed to increasing police officer posts and I am proud that today we are in a much better position with more than 200 extra police officers serving our communities.

The new recruits have worked hard during their training and their dedication and commitment is to be commended. I wish them all the best in their new roles.
