IT WAS a week's work experience in Year 10 that had Nathan Burnett sold on becoming a police officer.

Now, he's the new face at the Yangan station.

Upon graduating school in Gladstone, Senior Constable Burnett dove straight into the books to get all the theory out of the way, before entering the police force eight years ago.

"I started in Cairns and then went to the cape of Queensland, then out to Thursday Island and then Horn Island," Snr Const Burnett said.

Heading country was a change of scenery for this cop, who said he was excited to jump into the community.

"It's a bit different to being on an island," he said.

"It's not as remote here and it's a different type of policing; it's more about community policing here."

Before joining the force, Snr Const Burnett spent time in the Philippines with the Mormon Mission.

"It was great - one of the best things I've done in my life," he said.

Snr Const Burnett, his wife and two young children moved to Yangan in September and are thrilled to be part of the community.
