The Logan District of Queensland Police has welcomed twelve new officers as they begin their careers with the Queensland Police Service (QPS) as First Year Constables (FYC).

The FYCs received their orientation on Monday and are part of a cohort of 53 recruits who were inducted into the QPS at the Oxley academy last Thursday.

Officer in Charge of Crestmead Station Senior Sergeant Warren Parker welcomed three of the new officers who all happen to originate from the United Kingdom, including Constable Chris Bartley who spent 15 years as a Commando with the Royal Marines.
