Twenty newly-minted South Australia Police officers are about to embark on the next exciting step in their careers.
Course 34, comprised of 10 men and 10 women aged from 19 to 48 will today celebrate their graduation with a ceremony at the Police Academy.
Probationary Constable Charlotte Richardson and Probationary Constable Scott Rose today graduate from Course 34.
Among their number is Probationary Constable Charlotte Richardson, who emigrated from the UK as a youngster, grew up in the Riverland, and eventually settled in Coober Pedy.
Probationary Constable Richardson can’t wait to commence her first posting to Port Augusta, following in the footsteps of her mother, Senior Constable Tiffany Greig, who is a currently serving member in the APY Lands.
“I grew up in the country, so having the opportunity to begin my policing career in a country location is really a dream come true”, she says.
“My mother’s commitment to the APY Lands community has inspired me to challenge myself, and give back to my community - I have a big interest in remote policing.”
Fellow Course 34 graduate, Probationary Constable Scott Rose was previously employed in the fitness industry, working as a gym manager and PT.
Starting work in SAPOL's Western District, he aspires to one day work in SAPOL’s Serious and Organised Crime Branch (SOCB).
Probationary Constable Rose was enticed by the promise of a new challenge, and the many different roles and specialist disciplines available within SA Police.
“I’m very excited to graduate today and start my new career,” he says.
“It’s been a challenging 12 months, but I have enjoyed every minute of it.”
