LIVERPOOL police station welcomed four recruits on Monday.

The probationary constables were among 170 recruits who graduated from the NSW Police Academy at Goulburn on Friday.

Inspector Dean Johnstone, the Liverpool command crime manager, said he was looking forward to watching the new recruits develop into good officers.

"Having four new staff at Liverpool is boosting our operational capacity," Inspector Johnstone said.

Probationary Constable Amanda George, 25, applied to join NSW Police through an accelerated fingerprint technician recruitment program.

"I studied forensic science for three years at university and have been studying full-time at Goulburn since February," she said.

"After the probation period I hope to get into the Forensic Services Group, which is another, five-year program.

"I have always been interested in investigating and I have an eye for detail."

Probationary Constable George said she thought policing would be a good place to start her career.

Probationary Constable Trent Barrett said he knew from a young age that he wanted to be a police officer.

"I had no back up plan it was policing or nothing," the 20-year-old said.

"I think I would like to go into the dog unit.

"We had a few presentations at the academy over the last few weeks and they came in."

He said he chose to work at Liverpool police station because of the variety of work they offer.
