At 1:00 p.m. this afternoon, the Fayetteville Police Department will celebrate the graduation of 24 of our newest sworn officers in the City Council Chambers, 433 Hay Street.
The group completed study in 35 subject areas with 760 hours of training while attending the FPD’s Basic Law Enforcement Training Academy. In addition, they passed a state exam to be certified as police officers.
Upon graduation, the newly sworn officers will begin a fourteen-week Police Training Officer Program. During this training program, the new officers will be trained and evaluated by Police Specialists.
The ceremony is open to city employees and invited guests. Members of the media are welcome to attend.
