Constables Heather Campbell, Damien Machhoud and Jeffrey Duprez have spent a couple of weeks settling into the team which also includes Constable Melanie Economidis who started her job at Beaudesert earlier this year.

Constable Machhoud said the posting to Beaudesert had been his first preference.

"I knew some people at the station. It's a good team, a great environment and good country people," he said.
