Nottinghamshire Police's newest recruits braved the heat for their passing out parade yesterday afternoon.

A total of 20 new PCs were welcomed into the force at a special ceremony attended by proud family members.

The officers have completed a 19-week training programme and will now be deployed across the county in Response teams ­— the heart of uniformed policing.

Chief Constable Guildford said: “We are delighted to be welcoming more officers into our policing family. People tell me they want to see more police officers and we’re delivering that by continuing to go above and beyond Government uplift targets.

“Indeed, this was the fifth passing out parade we’ve had in recent months, taking our ranks to their highest levels in over a decade.

“But it’s not just about numbers. I am personally committed to ensuring Nottinghamshire Police continues to make great strides in becoming more representative of the communities we serve, which is why I was pleased to see our latest recruits come from all kinds of backgrounds.

“Today’s cohort includes a real mix of people ­— a rowing coach, flight attendant, mental health nurse and social worker to name just a few. They each bring them a dynamic skill set that will stand them in good stead as they embark on a new and exciting career in policing.
