23 New Police Officers Graduate from the MNPD Training Academy


November 27, 2013


Twenty-three new Metro police officers graduated from five months of rigorous physical and classroom training Tuesday evening during a ceremony at Harpeth Heights Baptist Church.  Mayor Karl Dean administered the oath of service to the new officers before joining Chief Steve Anderson in presenting each with their badge.

The 23 graduates will spend the next five to six months rotating among the seven precincts with Field Training Officers before patrolling Nashville’s neighborhoods on their own.
