The Chief Constable of Kent Police has welcomed twenty new police constables to the force. The recruits took part in a passing out parade earlier today.
‘I am very proud to be able to welcome 20 new constables to Kent Police. Kent is one of the safest places to live in the country, and they will play a very important part in keeping it that way. They are joining an extremely dedicated team of officers, staff, and volunteers who have the single focus of serving and protecting the people of Kent.
‘Kent Police has very high standards for recruits, and I make no apology for that. We want the best, and these 20 officers certainly represent that.’
