Sussex Police welcomes 64 new trainee officers to the force

A further 64 recruit constables have taken their first steps in their policing careers this week. The new officers were formally sworn in at an attestation ceremony on Wednesday 17th June – the first to be held in person since lockdown was eased. 
The new PCs were personally welcomed by T/Chief Constable Jo Shiner and PCC Katy Bourne, while family and friends joined the proceedings from around the world via Zoom. 
Amongst the recruits were the first 26 trainees on the force’s new Degree-Holder Entry Programme (DHEP) which is being run alongside the force’s Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) course for non-degree holders. 
T/Chief Constable Jo Shiner said: “I am very proud to welcome these new officers to the force. Attestation is such a significant ceremony, marking the start of a policing career, so it was fantastic that we were able to bring the recruit constables together for this event, through adapting to meet social distancing guidelines and by welcoming their families virtually. 
“All 64 new officers will be joining their divisions in nine weeks to continue their training on the job in their new communities.
“I wish them all every luck in their new careers."

Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne said: “On Wednesday I saw 64 new police officers sworn into Sussex Police. Speaking to some of them after their ceremony, it was clear that they are enthusiastic, forward-thinking and eager to make a positive difference to our communities.
“I’m pleased that they will soon be out patrolling our streets and keeping Sussex safer. 
“I applaud the senior officers who have worked so hard in this lockdown to find new ways to meet recruitment and training targets. 
“I was also incredibly impressed at how they adapted the ceremony to adhere to social distancing and gave family and friends the opportunity to ‘zoom’ call into the proceedings and witness this very proud moment for themselves.
