The online welcoming committee for the latest Wiltshire Police student officers included Swindon Borough Council member Russell Holland.
He said afterwards: "One of the things I say is that as the PCC is elected by the whole of Wiltshire that he represents everyone and so it's a privilege to be able to represent everyone to say thank you to them and wish them well.
"Personally, I regard the police the same as the armed forces, they are willing to put themselves at risk of harm in order to protect others.
"These new recruits will literally save lives, stop people suffering from being the victim of serious crime and strengthen our communities. Really grateful to have the opportunity to support them."
The student officers swore their oath in front of magistrate Maryanne Burton during the first week of their initial 23 week training programme.
Chief Constable Kier Pritchard wished them luck in the training, reminding the student officers of the importance of policing with fairness and integrity at all times.
