The Regina Police service welcomed four new recruits Thursday afternoon, with the official Swearing in Ceremony.
Police Chief Evan Bray said it’s a big day for the new officers, and the Regina Police Service.
“The Swearing in Ceremony is always a very special day for those new police officers, and for our police service of course, as we get four new members, and for their family and friends that are here as well today, it’s a day to celebrate.”
The new recruits will now head to Police College before receiving on the job training from experienced members of the Regina Police Service.
“Swearing in is a big day, your hearts pounding, you’re going to be a new police officer, Police College on the other hand is such an important part of the career of a young police officer, that’s where you learn all of the things that you’re basically going to put in force though your career for the next 20 to 30 years in some cases” said Bray.
Bray added there is usually two swearing in ceremonies a year, and the number of new recruits depends of the number of officers who have retired.
