A student police officer from Hertfordshire Constabulary joined the celebrations at No.10 to mark the recruitment of more than 20,000 new officers in England and Wales.
The event, hosted by Home Secretary Suella Braverman and Policing Minister Chris Philp last Wednesday (30 August), recognised the public service of those stepping into policing during this time to serve our communities.
Each force was asked to send a representative to the Downing Street event. PC Lukas Haase, one of the 719 new police officers recruited in Hertfordshire over the last three years, travelled to London alongside Chief Constable Charlie Hall.
Chief Constable Charlie Hall said: “It was an honour to attend the celebrations, along with Lukas who is a star pupil and has excelled in both his studies and his policing. He has already made a great start to his policing career, and I have no doubt he will continue to do so.”
PC Haase joined Hertfordshire Constabulary on the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) programme as part of the Uplift. He is currently working as a Safer Neighbourhood Team officer based in Stevenage.
He said: “I really enjoyed the event and feel very lucky to have been chosen to attend. I have loved doing the PCDA and feel it is a great opportunity for people who have aspirations to work in policing to get a degree, free of student debt, and it really gives you the chance to experience a wide range of different areas within policing. I would highly recommend it!”
