New police officers welcomed into Derbyshire Constabulary
Nineteen new police officers have been welcomed into Derbyshire Constabulary.
The new police constables began their training at the start of February before the guidance on social distancing was put in place.
Their training was condensed down slightly to finish a few weeks earlier than originally planned.
They will be returning to the force’s training school later on in the year for their pre-planned training which all student officers undertake after being out on their sections.
A Derbyshire Constabulary spokesperson said: “Most of the group of officers were previously employed by us in various jobs within the force, including PCSOs, detective staff investigators, information services, control room staff, to name a few. One student was an former officer from another force.
“We wish them all the best in their careers with us.”
The new recruits were welcomed into the force by Assistant Chief Constable Kem Mehmet on Friday.
