Childers residents this week welcomed the newest friendly face to the Childers Police Station, with Constable Hannah Shaw joining the team.
Officer in Charge of Childers Police Sergeant Geoff Fay said Hannah is a welcome addition to the team which now has eight active officers.
“Hannah joins Senior Constable Heather Wood as the two serving female officers in Childers.
“Having Hannah and Heather on the team provides us with significant flexibility especially when policing may involve interaction with female members of the community,” said Sgt Fay.
“We have a well-balanced and very professional team at the Childers Station, and I am certain Hannah will only add to the capabilities of the team.”
Constable Shaw was born in Emerald and after completing her first year in Dalby, Hannah has joined the Childers crew as a second-year constable.
“Although only new to town Hannah is quickly finding her feet and is already joining in the pre-shift workouts and station BBQ’s,” Sgt Fay said.
Constable Shaw comes to her new posting with her fiancée and pets, Maple (golden retriever) and Syrup (cat) and all have settled quickly into Childers life.
Sport is a passionate pursuit for Constable Shaw having played rugby league with a women’s competition. Being slight of build Hannah said her size and speed saw her a natural fit for a wing position.
Before joining the Queensland Police Service (QPS), Constable Shaw studied education and is now looking forward to experiencing small-town policing.
