BATON ROUGE - The future of the Baton Rouge Police Department begins today.

New police recruits reported for training to become officers Monday morning for the 80th academy. Over the next 21 weeks, the recruits will train to protect and serve and work with veteran officers once they graduate.

There are 35 new recruits in all. Four women are among the group dominated by males.

We'll have more on the police academy later on WBRZ News 2 at Noon.
