Dubbo MP and new police minister Troy Grant paid a visit to Mudgee police station on his first visit to town since being re-elected last month.
The acting premier spoke with the Local Area Command’s newly appointed superintendant, Anthony Joyce who has come from the Central Hunter LAC.
The station is not unfamiliar to Mr Grant who occasionally attended during his 22-year-career as a police officer in the Dubbo region.
“I spent time here on and off for courses and as a HR officer, I know the issues for police,” Mr Grant said.
The father-of-two was in town on Monday to thank the community for its support in the NSW state election.
Polls for the Electoral District of Dubbo were officially declared last Thursday, with the Nationals MP returned for a second term with an increased majority.
Mr Grant was first elected to the NSW Parliament in 2011 with a two candidate preferred vote of 63.7 per cent, his majority at the 2015 poll increased to 70.42 per cent.
“I am honoured to be returned as the Member for the Dubbo Electorate, it is a privileged position that I take very seriously and I sincerely thank the community for supporting me,” Mr Grant said.
“To receive an increased majority is truly humbling but now it’s back to work delivering for the people of the Mid-Western Regional area.
“I look forward to spending more time in the community and working together to deliver on our commitments.”
