Graduating With Highest Distinction, New Police Officers Ready for Duty In Tasmania’s North West

The North-West will have seven new officers moving to the region soon, with the officers graduating from the Tasmania Police Academy yesterday.

Five officers will join the Burnie station, while two, including class of 2015 dux Constable Caitlin Cashion, will be moving to the Devonport station. Dux is a modern title given to the highest-ranking student in the academia.

The seven were among 19 who graduated from the academy.

Tasmania Police Commissioner Darren Hine congratulated all constables on successfully completing their training.

“Their dedication and commitment is evident as they stand proudly among their colleagues and peers,” Mr Hine said. “As a service, we collectively look forward to watching their careers develop. But, for this graduation moment, we take time to celebrate this achievement with them all.”

Once again, women were named the dux and runner-up dux for the 2015 class.

The dux, Constable Cashion, 24, joined the police force after working with Anglicare and completing Bachelor and Master degrees at the University of Tasmania.

Runner-up dux is Constable Kate Springer, who will join Launceston Police.
