A brother-sister duo are now on duty at Wangaratta police station, but there will be no sibling rivalry - Cohan Newton and Lacey Evans are looking forward to the chance to work with each other.
Both are from Wangaratta originally and Senior Constable Newton returned to the area about 10 years ago when joining the police.
Constable Evans has followed suit this week and completed her first shift on Monday.
After a 19-week probation, she hopes she will be able to stay permanently in Wangaratta with her young family.
Their family has a history in the police force in the area, with their aunty Lorna Newton the first female officer in Wangaratta in 1963.
Constable Evans also heard positive things about the job from her brother.
"I'll be able to get a few pointers off him," she said.

Some of her duties during her first week on the job have been COVID shifts, ensuring people are abiding by the rules.
Even her time at the Victoria Police academy was unlike the officers who went before her.
"It's been a bit strange," Constable Evans.
"Training at the academy was a bit different too, it was a lot quieter.
"They're not doing graduations as such.
"Normally it would go for a couple of hours and you'd get the full bagpipes and such."
While her graduation was socially distanced, where she picked up her badge from the table, it was the first of its kind to be live-streamed for those who could not attend in person.
"It was good that the family got to watch it," she said.
