Jimboomba police have welcomed two new faces to the ranks.
First year constables Kyle Doherty and Robert Wierda said they were looking forward to working with the officers in Jimboomba.
Constable Doherty is from Ipswich and was involved in project management prior to his placement.
“I’ve always been drawn to policing,” he said.
“There are so many options I just want to get stuck in and see where it takes me.
“I’m loving it. It’s nice to get up and want to go to work.”
Constable Wierda said he was working in the construction industry on the Gold Coast before making the change to policing.
“I went and did a law and justice course and it was a positive change for me,” he said.
“General duties is where I see myself. It is all facets of the job and a diversity of things.”
Officer in charge Senior Sergeant Peter Waugh welcomed the recruits to the Jimboomba team.
“They have been here for a week and have been doing a great job,” he said.
“They will make a tremendous contribution to the area.”
Logan MP Linus Power said the first year constables were to be commended for taking on the role to protect and engage with community groups across the electorate.
“The new recruits will gain fantastic experience here in Logan,” he said.
“It’s a community that encompasses the best of country lifestyle and city life.
“Senior Sergeant Peter Waugh and his staff do a tremendous job in keeping our suburbs safe and reaching out and supporting our community groups, schools and local businesses.
“I’m very pleased to welcome Kyle and Robert to our area. I know that Senior Sergeant Waugh will give them the support they need to keep Queenslanders safe.”
The Logan district welcomed two new additional police officers at Jimboomba station, four new police at Crestmead station and one at Browns Plains Police Station.
The new recruits are part of 266 additional police officers that the Palaszczuk government is delivering in 2015-16.
