After four months of training, 32 new police officers have been welcomed into Hertfordshire Constabulary.

Their training schedule included both in-class and practical sessions at Stevenage's Longfield centre.

The new trainees learned about the law and powers, personal safety, hostile situations, first aid and safeguarding vulnerable victims.

During their graduation ceremony, the new recruits paraded in front of Chief Constable Charlie Hall and Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner David Gibson.

Det Con Hall said: "These officers have gone through a vigorous recruitment process. I am pleased to welcome them to the constabulary."
