Member for Port Stephens Kate Wasington told News Of The Area, “It’s wonderful to welcome six new police recruits to our district. “They’ll be working between Port Stephens and Maitland, and under our strong local leadership team in the Port Stephens-Hunter Police District. “These new probationary officers are getting a great start to their policing career, and our community is getting additional boots on the ground.” “We know that local police have been working tirelessly during the lockdown, making sure people are complying with health orders and keeping our community safe. “Having more hands on deck, particularly during this difficult time, will bring some well-deserved relief,” she said.
