Beaudesert to receive new police recruit after fast-tracked graduation ceremony

Police Minister Mark Ryan has congratulated another round of police recruits who graduated from the QPS Academy today, in the second fast-tracked graduation ceremony this week.

The recruits graduated six weeks ahead of schedule to bolster frontline resources.

Mr Ryan said a first year constable would be deployed to Beaudesert Police Station.

"I'm pleased the commissioner has taken the step bring forward the graduations to ensure the safety of both frontline officers, and the wider community," he said.

"It's good to know Beaudesert will benefit from this decision.

"I know many in the community are concerned right now, and the presence of these first year constables will go a long way towards boosting public safety.

"It's crucial our communities feel safe, now more than ever."

This comes after it was announced last week that the Beaudesert station was shifting temporarily to premises on Oakland Way during the construction of a new $7 million Beaudesert Police facility on Anna Street.
