SOME say first impressions last, and in the case of Warwick's two newest police officers first impressions meant everything.

Constables Nick Larrarte and Sheldon Livingstone were posted in Warwick after graduating from the Police Academy last Thursday.

Neither of them listed Warwick as a preference but both are impressed with what the Rose City has to offer.

"I didn't get any of my preferences," Constable Larrarte said.

"I moved here on Friday.

"I wasn't sure what to expect but I think Warwick is quite a nice town."

Const Larrarte has made the move to Warwick from Brisbane with his partner and newborn baby.

"I've always had an interest in it (policing)," he said.

"It just took me a while to decide."

Also from Brisbane is Const Livingstone.

"I had hoped to stay in Brisbane," he said.

"I've just always lived in the city, either Melbourne or Brisbane.

"My family came and helped me move in on Friday.

"I'm pretty happy here at the moment."

Const Livingstone said he had always wanted to be a police officer.

"I did some admin experience and it confirmed that this is what I want to do," he said.
