Today’s graduation of 22 new police officers reflects SAPOL’s ongoing commitment to boosting police numbers by 313 by June 2017.
Probationary Constable Jamie-Lee Fowler, ex-Royal Australian Navy and Probationary Constable Jake Haberfield, former professional cricket player, bring well-honed team skills to policing.
Probationary Constable Fowler spent eight years in the Navy, with much of that time deployed overseas including on humanitarian aid.
“As a mother of three young children, the career I was in was not suitable for a young family. SAPOL allows me to serve the community and go home every day.
“I’m extremely happy to graduate today. This is the day that we have all been training for.
“My first posting is Whyalla. My initial aim is to be a general patrol officer, but later in my career I intend to be part of the Explosives Coordination Section.”
Probationary Constable Haberfield played professional cricket for South Australia and Victoria, before moving back home to South Australia and joining SAPOL.
“I had friends in the job who always spoke about how much they loved their job and how satisfying it was.
“I’m very happy and excited to graduate today and can’t wait to begin my career. My first posting is to Holden Hill and after that, I’m keeping an open mind. There are so many different roles in SAPOL, I’m happy to see where it takes me.”
Congratulations to all our new officers and a big welcome to the SAPOL team!
