SAN JOSE (KCBS) – Police staffing is about to get a much needed boost in San Jose, as the Police Department’s academy held its first graduation ceremony since 2009.
Badges were pinned on 43 new officers during Friday’s ceremony.
The officers are graduating from the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium, or The Academy for short, located at Evergreen Valley College on Yerba Buena Road in southeastern San Jose.
“It’s great to have them,” said SJPD spokesman, Officer Albert Morales. “They’re welcomed. They’re eager to get started. It’s a great time for the city.”
