New officers begin their careers
I was delighted to join 47 new Gwent Police officers and their families for their formal passing out parade this week. These officers will now be deployed to policing teams across Gwent.
The decision to pursue a career in front-line policing is a brave one. We know that assaults on emergency service workers have risen in recent years, and to dedicate a career to keeping people safe, in spite of the possible dangers must be commended.
I would like to thank these officers for their decision to join Gwent Police and wish them all the best for their future careers.
