KCPD Entrant Officer Class 141 graduated last night from the Kansas City Regional Police Academy, and they'll hit the streets this weekend. They have been assigned to the Central, East, Metro and South patrol divisions. They'll spend their first few months on patrol with a tenured Field Training Officer.
There were 25 graduates altogether, and they began their training back on January 25, 2010. Here's how they break down demographically:
23 males, 2 females
20 white, 4 black, 1 Hispanic
I'm very proud of these new officers and wish them the best of luck.
