Eleven police officers were formally welcomed to Hertfordshire Constabulary by Deputy Chief Constable Bill Jephson at a passing out parade yesterday (Thursday 11 January).
The cohort consisted of three ex-students, a former bus driver, a nursery manager, an IT architect, an NHS worker, a communications operator, consulting project manager, reprographics engineer and an operations manager.
Family and friends of the officers came along to help celebrate their achievement at police headquarters in Welwyn Garden City where the new recruits were presented with certificates, marking the end of their initial training, with other senior officers and trainers in attendance.
Deputy Chief Constable Bill Jephson said: “Congratulations to each and every one of you. You are citizens entrusted with power and with this power comes responsibility. Keeping your oath will demand a great deal from you, you will face difficult situations and decisions, but you will have the full support of the constabulary as you embark on your new journey as police officers where you will no doubt make a positive difference. You are the public face of the police service and I know you will be strong ambassadors for the force. I wish you all the very best.”
Hertfordshire Constabulary is a force that’s putting prevention first to reduce crime and harm, making a positive difference to people from all walks of life.
