Prime Minister Boris Johnson has recorded a video message, congratulating police recruits who have graduated from their basic over the last six months.
In the two minute video, uploaded to Mr Johnson’s Facebook page, the Prime Minister points outs that new-joiners have signed up during unprecedented times and thanked them for their dedication to the job.
Mr Johnson also pointed out that police officers had been helping to save lives during the COVID-19 national emergency, by ‘encouraging people to follow the rules on social distancing’.
‘You are, undoubtedly, an incredible weapon in this national battle against the coronavirus pandemic’, Mr Johnson added.
He continued: ‘and today, thanks to your commitment to protect the people of this country by signing up, we have more than 3,000 extra police officers on our streets’.
In the post, Mr Johnson wrote: ‘I want to congratulate all the new police recruits who have graduated in the last six months, who are now keeping our streets and communities safe.
‘In these challenging times, your professionalism, devotion and personal courage is an inspiration to us all’.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
