Passing out parade held for new officers

19th March 2024

I was proud to join the Chief Constable, as well as the family and friends of 43 new police officers last week to formally mark the start of their policing career.

I have committed to increasing police officer posts in Gwent and today we are in a much better position than when I was first elected in 2016, with more than 350 extra police officers serving our communities.

These new recruits have demonstrated hard work, dedication and commitment to Gwent’s communities and must be commended. They will now be deployed across Gwent, and I wish them all the best for the future.
