An introduction was given of the new class of probationary Police Officer candidates. The academy overlapped classes of police officer candidates at its Sherman Avenue facility in order to efficiently fill vacant positions.

Twenty-five candidates are expected to graduate the session going on currently by October 3rd. The new class is to graduate early next year. The department’s Background Investigators have been assessing candidates for another quickly approaching session which will begin in early 2015.
