New recruits attested as police constables

Last week 99 new recruits were attested as police constables.

We have been spending some time with some of our new officers and are sharing their stories.

Piotr Dzienis came to the UK seven years ago and started his life in the country working in factories.

The 31-year old now wants to be able to bridge the gap between the Polish community and police.

He said: “I met a police officer who inspired me into joining the job. I want to be able to show my community that there is a positive side to the police. I also want to use my knowledge of my culture and community to help me in my role.”

Piotr will be based in Rochdale Borough.
