Graduation Ceremony for 43 New Police Officers
The Nashville police department’s officer ranks grew by 43 with the June 4 graduation of the latest class of trainees. The new officers received their badges from Chief Anderson and took the oath of office from Mayor Dean during a ceremony at Hermitage Hills Baptist Church, 3475 Lebanon Pike.
The 43 members of the graduating class began training on January 3. The new officers will spend the next five to six months with precinct field training officers before patrolling the streets by themselves.
