Thirty new recruits were formally welcomed into the Constabulary by Chief Constable, Simon Byrne during an attestation ceremony at the Headquarters in Winsford on the evening of 9th December 2015.

All were in good spirits throughout the evening, as the Cheshire Police Band performed to an overjoyed audience and eleven members of the Constabulary were also recognised for their hard work and dedication via the presentation of the Chief and Chief Superintendent Commendations.

Chief Constable Simon Bryne said, “I am delighted to welcome our new recruits to the Constabulary. We made a commitment to the public of Cheshire to increase frontline policing and I am thrilled that we have been able to deliver on this promise. They will soon join colleagues in the Local Policing Unit’s to help deliver our commitments to the communities of Cheshire.

“I look forward to seeing them embrace their new roles and the difference they will make to help keep our communities safe.”

Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire John Dwyer said: “It is very encouraging to see these new recruits take up the challenge to police our community and commit to keeping people safe. They have a fantastic and diverse career ahead of them and I wish them well in fulfilling their vocation to the best of their abilities.

“I’m sure the public will feel reassured that despite the challenges of austerity, we are keeping our commitment to Cheshire residents by putting more officers on the front line. This can only be a good thing which will increase confidence in the Constabulary and continue to make Cheshire a safe place to live.”
