THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE WILL ATTEND THE METROPOLITAN POLICE SERVICE PASSING OUT PARADE FOR NEW RECRUITS

Hendon, London

Friday 3rd November, 2017

The Duke of Cambridge will attend the Metropolitan Police Service Passing Out Parade, to mark the graduation of 182 new recruits from the Met’s Police Academy in Hendon. The Duke will join the Commissioner Cressida Dick and Chief Superintendent Penny Banham to take the salute and inspect the Parade. After the ceremony, The Duke will join a short reception with some of the graduating officers who have received the highest honours during their training.

The Peel Centre at Hendon is the largest and most comprehensive police training school in the world. Every new Police Constable and Special Constable who joins the Metropolitan Police Service will start their foundation training at Hendon, before being deployed to continue training within or nearby the communities they will serve on their initial posting. The Passing Out Parade at Hendon marks an important moment for every new officer, and their family. It is a traditional ceremony that has taken place at Hendon since 1934 and marks the transition from trainee police officer to probationer.

The policing complex at Hendon is also the current base for many of the Family Liaison Officers who have been working with people and families affected by the fire at the Grenfell Tower. The Duke will also take the opportunity to meet some of them, and to hear about their work. Before departing, His Royal Highness will plant a tree in the Memorial Garden to commemorate his visit.
