January 16, 2014


Mayor Karl Dean and Chief Steve Anderson today welcomed Nashville’s newest class of police officer trainees.  The 25 men and women began the rigorous classroom and physical training program on January 2nd.  Their graduation is slated for June 10th.
This is the 19th academy class to begin during Mayor Dean’s six-year tenure.  He and Chief Anderson share a strong commitment to ensure that the Nashville police department keeps pace with attrition and remains fully staffed.


Mayor Karl Dean thanked the trainees for choosing the Nashville police department as the place they want to work and urged them to persevere through the challenging training process.

Chief Steve Anderson takes a question from a member of the trainee class after speaking about the tremendous support the police department receives from the community, Mayor Dean and the Metro Council.

This class, formally known as MNPD Session 74, is scheduled to graduate June 10th.
