A graduation ceremony is held for the Tulsa police department’s newest rookies.
The 25 police officers and two fire marshals take the oath of office today after successfully completing academy classes. Chief Chuck Jordan says they will be officers-in-training the next 16 weeks before being able to go it alone on patrol.
Jordan says these graduates will help fill positions lost over the year due to retirements and attrition. Another class of 40 is planned to start in July.
