Who is NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb? Age, Instagram, Salary, and, more!: The new police chief creates history on the steps of her old school. Karen Webb made history in more ways than one on Tuesday when she was sworn in as the state’s first female commissioner, bringing the ceremony, which is usually held at Government House, to her birthplace of Boorowa’s local school. She joked that the display of dignitaries, police horses, dogs, and helicopters in front of the red brick buildings of Boorowa Central School may make up for any mediocre show and tell displays from her 13 years as a student there.

Who is NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb?

Commissioner Webb told her audience, which included scores of youngsters sitting cross-legged on the grass, that growing up in the small town had given her a strong sense of belonging. When she earned her driver’s license on Australia Day in 1982, she met a local cop and true community leader who inspired her to join the NSW Police Force.

She says she is “very honored” to be named the 23rd NSW Police Commissioner and the first female to hold the role in nearly 160 years. Commissioner Webb said the force has had to adapt to changes in how crimes are perpetrated over the years, and that cybercrime is a new challenge that requires technology-enabled police work.

However, she stated that community engagement would remain a top priority for her. My priority has always been to instill a professional and good culture in our teams and individuals so that we can engage our community with dignity and respect, she explained.

People are at the heart of every crime: victims, witnesses, criminals, and the community. People are at the heart of the NSW Police Force. Our strength is our 22,000-strong officer and crew. It was the first time in more than 170 years that a commissioner was sworn in outside of the capital, according to Police Minister and Deputy Premier Paul Toole. Commissioner Webb’s decision to hold the ceremony in a community of only 1650 people in the state’s Hilltops region, 340 kilometers southwest of Sydney, says a lot about her principles, and she has already inspired many young people, he says.

Premier Dominic Perrotter said it exemplified why she is the best candidate for the role. When our police force collaborates with our local communities, we obtain the best results in terms of community safety. He explained that this is how you create trust, loyalty, faith, and cooperation. You’ll need a culture-shaping leader at the helm.
