Extra police positions allocated to Camden PAC

Wollondilly and Camden will be protected by an additional seven police as part of 250 new positions in the NSW Police Force.

Police and Emergency Services minister David Elliott said the new positions were part of the 1500 new police allocations over four years.

Camden Police Area Command acting commander Acting Superintendent Michael Bright said the command welcomed the new officers.

"The Camden PAC has been allocated seven extra police positions - these positions are three designated detectives, three general duties and a CPR Child Protection Officer," he said.

"The allocation of the positions will continue to allow the Command to grow and meet the challenges of the growing south-west region in the Camden and Wollondilly LGAs.

"The Camden command was allocated two probationary constables on August 15 and will receive a further four probationary constables in October.

"These officers will spend 12 months training in the command before being confirmed to the rank of constable in 2022."

Camden MP Peter Sidgreaves also welcomed the allocation of new police positions at Camden PAC.

"Some of the Force's finest officers will be joining the Camden and Wollondilly districts during a time when the community has relied heavily on their local police for many months," he said.

"The additional positions will make a real difference to the NSW Police Force and give them a greater capability to keep our district and our state safe.

"On behalf of our communities, I am pleased to be able to welcome our new police officers."
