THIRTEEN proud trainees
have slapped on their new
patches after graduating
as Service Police from the
Defence Police Training Centre
(DPTC) in Sydney.
The eight Army and five Navy per-
sonnel marched out of Lamia Barracks
on August 31 after completing the
14-week Service Police Basic Course
(SPBC), which prepared them for a new
career challenge as well as a vital role in
The graduation parade also included a
promotion and recategorisation ceremony
where the sailors received their Naval
Police Coxswain badges and the soldiers
donned ceremonial scarlet berets.
It was attended by Gp-Capt Sue
McGready, Commander Defence
National Storage and Distribution
Centre, as reviewing officer, and Wg-Cdr
Andy Roberts as host officer and CO
"You provide commanders with the
mechanism to provide discipline and
good military order and that is no easy
task -- even in the 21st century -- and
it is a task that all of you need to fulfil
wholeheartedly if you are to value-add to
military capability," Gp-Capt McGready
"As Service Police men and women
you are granted additional powers and
must accept the associated responsibili-
ties and challenges that are not expected
of junior personnel elsewhere in the ADF.
"You must respect this authority and
use it judiciously and in the best interests
of the individuals, the service group and
the greater ADF."
The Kenny Award was presented to
LCpl Dan Rubio in recognition of his
proficiency and tireless application to his
studies during the basic course.
LCpl Rubio said he changed category
from catering to Service Police because it
better suited the university degree he was
completing in counter-terrorism.
"After four years in catering I was
looking for a new challenge and the
Service Police was the best option
because of the work they do supporting
ADF operations," he said.
Army members completed the SPBC
Army Single Service Course, also at
DPTC. This helped to hone their policing
skills in the field environment, including
critical incident re
Maj Emma Broder
and attributes in
general duties poli
ing, basic investiga
tions, and operatio
safety," she said.
The current SP
is evolving into mo
dynamic and focus
courses set up to b
prepare members for success.
"Our course members must be ena-
bled to be the best they can be. Firstly,
they must know and understand them-
selves, be responsible for their own learn-
ing, conduct and behaviour, be adaptable,
flexible and situationally aware, and
enabled to make informed and quality
decision based on the specific circum-
stances they find themselves in," Wg-Cdr
"As part of this new approach, we
must build resilience into our people.
They must be both physically and men-
tally tough. This will enable them to
confidently deal with all they face when
executing their Service Police responsi-
bilities. This starts on the SPBC and must
continue throughout the Service Police
New police hit the road
Graduates hone their field skills in incident response, detection, investigation and internment, Michael Brooke reports.
Proud: Thirteen Service Police graduates have donned their berets and coxswain badges for new careers
after completing 14 weeks at the Defence Police Training Centre. Inset, LCpl Dan Rubio received the
Kenny Award for proficiency and tireless application to studies.
