New officers hit the streets next week
BATON ROUGE- New police officers will hit the street next week after they graduate from the eightieth training academy Monday.
Police said 34 cadets will graduate from the academy. A ceremony will be held at the Independence Park Theater.
Officers will begin working as early as Tuesday.
The class started in June and ran for 21 weeks. Four women are among the group dominated by males.
The mayor has asked city leaders to approve his 2015 budget which will include two academies next year. If approved, it could graduate as many as sixty officers in 2015.
