Giving back and helping the community were the main reasons why Emma Burdack and Liam Maloney decided to become police officers.
The probationary constables arrived for their first day of work at Dubbo Police Station on Monday after completing months of training at the police academy in Goulburn.
Constable Burdack is looking forward to settling in the Dubbo community, after she relocated from Gosford.
"I have a lot of police officers in my family and as young child I saw how they helped our community so I wanted to be apart of that," she said.
Even though he hails from Newcastle, Constable Maloney said he has fond memories of Dubbo.
"I was glad to come back, I visited the zoo as a kid," the former tradie said.
Orana Mid-Western Police District acting Superintendent Keith Ridley said it was great to see young officers start their policing journey in the local command.
"It's great to have extra police on the street who we can deploy to assist in the reduction of crime," he said.
"They will help make the streets safer in Dubbo and Mudgee.
Orana Mid-Western Police District education development officer Sergeant Justin Falkiner will work closely with constables to ensure their professional development is on track and benchmarks are achieved.
He said the constables will benefit from being exposed to "a lot of different policing duties" in Dubbo and Mudgee.
"It helps us meet our commitment to the community if we can put more boots on the ground," he said.
