96 New recruits attested as police constables


Mohammed Niazi was inspired into becoming a police officer after becoming a victim of hate crime.

He was helped by a police officer and it was through talking to him that he made the decision to join.

The 33-year old who previously worked as a special constable and a call handler won the Citizen in Policing Award in 2017.

He said: “I want to make a difference to my community act as a role model for my family and I am looking forward to my career in particular working as a response officer.”

Mohammed has been posted to the City of Manchester Division. He and 95 other new recruits were attested into the role of police constable last Tuesday at a formal ceremony held at Stockport Town Hall.
