"When I found out I’d been accepted, I was so proud of myself. It made my dreams feel more than achievable."
"One of the biggest challenges I faced during my studies was balancing work, studies and family life. All of my struggles now feel worth it."
Shane is set to undertake his Associate Degree in Policing Practice at the NSW Police Force Academy in early 2017. Once completed, he will be a qualified probationary constable.
"For me, being a part of the police force is not only a job, it’s a career. I want to continue strengthening my skills as a police officer. I see myself out on the street, making a difference and protecting my local community."
"As an Indigenous officer, I can relate to people in my community. My exposure as an officer will help the community realise that police officers are human and there to help."
