Cleveland’s First Lateral Transfer Police Academy

IMG_1903Today, 21 recruits began the 130th Cleveland Police Academy. This academy class is unique in that the recurits are already sworn law enforcement officers. They have joined the Cleveland Division of Police after having served in communities around the state of Ohio as sworn law enforcement officers. They will complete 8 weeks of training specific to the needs of the communities of the city of Cleveland, and graduate just in time to boost the number of officers on the streets this summer. On behalf of Chief Michael McGrath and the men and women of the Cleveland Division of Police, Welcome, Officers!
