Castle Hill Police welcomes new recruits

THE Hills Local Area Command welcomed four new officers to its ranks last month following the NSW Police Academy's graduation ceremony in Goulburn.

The four constables were welcomed to the station by Acting Superintendent Gary Bailey and sent out on the beat to get familiar with Castle Hill's CBD.

Each of the officers come to the force with prior experience in a variety of jobs including former CityRail guard Michael Dimech.

Constable Dimech said he jumped at the chance to join the police force when his position with Railcorp was made redundant.

"I worked closely in tandem with the police as a transit officer and have experience in enforcing rules and regulations," he said.

Dimech is joined by fellow constables Jake Portelli, Alex Lambrousis and Matthew Glanville.

Constable Glanville also plans to draw on his skills as a former personal trainer.

"I passed the physical test no problem and I'm now working towards my associate degree in policing," he said.

"I hope to earn my first stripe this coming year and one day become a youth liaison officer."

Constables Lambrousis and Portelli want a future with the riot and drug squads respectively.
