The Member for Dubbo Troy Grant has welcomed 38 new police recruits headed for our region following yesterday's announcement by the Minister for Police that 437 new police officers have graduated from the NSW Police Academy.

The Orana Local Area Command (LAC) will receive five new police officers and three officers will be stationed in the Lachlan LAC.

Mr Grant said the Government is well on track to delivering record police numbers for NSW.

"This boost to regional police resources is confirmation of the Government's determination to deliver better outcomes for the Dubbo electorate," said Mr Grant.

"The Government's decision to boost regional policing numbers is in direct contrast with the position taken by the leader of the Opposition who suggested earlier this year that more police should be re-directed to metropolitan commands."

The 2012-13 state budget included $178 million in recurrent funding over the next four years to bring the NSW Police Force to a record strength of 16,356 officers by June 2014. Police strength across the state now stands at 16,016 officers.

The Government has also delivered on its commitment to establish a new Police Transport Command and dedicated Traffic Highway Patrol Command.

Both the Highway Patrol and the Transport Command will continue to support Local Area Commands but the new structure will enhance their capabilities to deliver the best outcomes for the community.
