Cleveland Police has welcomed the latest cohort of student officers to the Force during a special ceremony.
A total of 28 new officers and one inspector were sworn in at an attestation ceremony on Monday 31st July at Cleveland Police’s Learning and Development Centre (LDC).
The event marked the start of the officers’ 18-week Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP) as they kick-start their policing careers.
During the course, the officers will attend practical sessions which will support them in keeping themselves and the public safe and they will work on critical skills including communication.
After 18 weeks, the students, along with their families, will be invited to a Pass out Parade where they will celebrate completing their training and will be presented with certificates and awards.
The special attestation ceremony was attended by Chief Constable Mark Webster who welcomed the officers on their very first day.
Cleveland Police’s Chief Constable, Mark Webster, said: “This was a fantastic day welcoming our latest group of student officers and I’m looking forward to seeing them progress in their careers here at Cleveland Police.
“It’s an extremely rewarding yet challenging role that will allow them to make a difference every day to the communities they live and work in while gaining invaluable skills. I wish them all the best for the future.
“I would encourage anyone who may be interested in a career at Cleveland Police to visit our website and look at our latest vacancies.”
