Thirty-one new constables have joined the Northern Territory Police Force frontline.

The officers will be posted to various stations across the Territory including Alice Springs, Katherine, Tennant Creek, Borroloola and Galiwin’ku.

“Territory Labor continue to deliver more police for our community. There are more police in training to start their careers,” she said.

“These new recruits are now beginning their careers with the NT Police and I congratulate them on choosing to serve and protect the Northern Territory community.

“We are giving our police the resources they need to keep the community safe and to respond to Territorians in need.”

There are currently 47 recruits at the NT Police college. Since January, 97 constables have graduated from training, along with 61 auxiliaries.
