Two new officers head to Warwick
WARWICK will see two new police officers hit the beat and Minister for Southern Downs Lawrence Springborg is welcoming them with open arms.
"Two new officers to our community is part of the Government's continued investment in Warwick and surrounding areas," Mr Springborg said.
"These new officers are warmly welcomed by both the people of Southern Downs and myself and we look forward to the positive contribution they'll make to the community.
"I am always looking for additional local police resources and I remain committed to this as a local member of parliament."
The first-year constables were part of 116 who recently graduated from the Queensland Police Service Oxley Academy.
"These officers will be stationed in communities from Coolangatta to Cairns and will provide a visible and active policing presence," Police Minister Jack Dempsey said.
"As part of the Newman Government's 2012/13 Budget, we committed to an additional 300 officers.
"This is an important part of that commitment."
The two officers are due to arrive in Warwick today.
