Four new police officers have joined the force in the shire and Camden this week - and they can't wait to get into their new roles.

The four probationary constables started their first day on the job with Camden Police Area Command on Monday, fresh from graduating the police academy in Goulburn.

Sankalpa Rijal joined the police after career in IT.

"I worked for three years in IT after university," the 28-year-old said. "I always wanted to serve the community that I live in. I grew up near the police academy in Nepal, so I was always eager to wear the uniform."

Constable Rijal said he had a great time at the academy and "met many new friends".

Natalie Jonak also underwent a career change before donning the blue uniform.

"I worked with my parents who spray paint cars and I was their labourer," she said.

"I made the change because since I could remember I wanted to become a Police Officer and my parents offered me the opportunity to make some good money after finishing high school."

The 21-year-old was drawn to policing from a young age.

"All I have ever wanted to do is help people in need and make a positive change within the community," she said. "I want to join the Highway Patrol in order to join the Trailbikes field within the police. I have ridden motorbikes my entire life."

Bradley Feeney joins NSW Police fresh from a career as a home lender at ANZ.

"I got bored of being stuck behind a desk and wanted to protect and help the community," the 28-year-old said.

"I've always wanted to join and when my mate went through the academy last year it gave me motivation to follow my dream."

Constable Feeney hopes to be a detective one day and serve as a role model for the community.

Gabrielle Middleton is the youngest new officer joining Camden PAC at just 19 years old.

She has always wanted to join the force, and previously worked as a retail supervisor.

"I love the idea of being able to make a difference within the community and make a positive impact on someone's life," Constable Middleton said.
