PFCC welcomes 79 new Essex Police officers at Passing Out Parade

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Roger Hirst welcomed 79 new police officers to Essex Police at a Passing Out Parade last week.

The officers, 42 men and 37 women, will carry on the hard work of the force driving down crime in the county.

Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, said: “Passing Out Parades are a very special occasion for the newly qualified officers and their families. It’s an opportunity to celebrate their hard work and dedication to joining the force, as well as congratulating them for completing their initial training.

“They are joining a police force that is the strongest and largest it has ever been and demonstrates the commitment of the PFCC and Essex Police to maintaining strength of numbers.

“The extra investment in our police service is making a difference. Overall crime has reduced by 5.9% in the last 12 months (to Jan 24). There are more officers in our communities, more specialist officers and more action being taken to prevent crime from happening.”

Mr Hirst was joined at the passing out parade on Friday 8th March at Essex Police Headquarters in Chelmsford by Chief Constable BJ Harrington, Deputy Lieutenant Mrs Sidra Naeem, the Right Honourable James Cleverly, Member of Parliament for Braintree and Home Secretary and the High Sheriff Charles Bishop and his consort Nellie Bishop.
