The ambitions of 22 members of the Northern Territory Police Trainee Constable Course were realised on Thursday 18 August with their graduation from the Northern Territory Police Training College.
The ceremony not only marked the successful completion of the challenging training for Squad 110, but also the start of an exciting new career across the Territory.
The recruits endured 26 challenging weeks of instruction and assessment covering legislation, policies and procedures, defensive tactics, driver training, firearms, cultural awareness, search and rescue and communication.
Police Commissioner John McRoberts is confident that the new officers will serve the community with pride and commitment to the highest ethical standard of service delivery.
Every squad has its standout performers and Squad 110 is no exception.
The Rod Evans Memorial Trophy for the highest academic achievement was awarded to Rhys Studders, with Anna Fulwood receiving the Commissioner's Trophy as the most outstanding trainee.
The Physical Training Trophy for outstanding physical training ability was awarded to Trent Berry, and Daranee Zeitz was presented with the Glen Huitson Trophy for the most consistent application in all areas of the training course.
The 15 men and 7 women have taken up positions in Alice Springs, Tennant Creek, Katherine and Darwin.
