Ceremony marks completion of new officers' initial training
Main article content
A cohort of new officers have completed their 21-week initial training, and attended their passing out ceremony.
In September 2022, we welcomed a cohort of Police Constable Degree Apprentices, who were the first group of brand new officers to swear their oath to King Charles III following the sad death of HM Queen Elizabeth.
We are delighted to say they have now completed their 21-week initial training and attended their passing out ceremony last week.
After a well-earned week off, the 28 new officers will deploy across the force to their respective Professional Development Units to continue their training, get hands on experience and continue their demanding studies for their degree in Professional Policing Practice. They include eight officers destined for York, five destined for Scarborough and 15 for County.
The passing out ceremony was held at our headquarters at Alverton Court in Northallerton on Friday 17 February 2023 and hosted by Chief Constable Lisa Winward.
Our Police Constable Degree Apprenticeships are delivered in partnership with the Open University.
