“APD is the strongest it’s ever been with the addition of these 30 new officers,” said Chief Justin Doll. “I want to thank the Mayor and the Assembly for supporting these staffing increase efforts.”

The new officers begin their field training this weekend. At the same time, officers from last November’s graduating class are wrapping up their field training.

A new academy class begins on Monday, June 18th with 20 recruits. When these recruits graduate in November, APD will have almost 450 sworn officers. The following month, another class begins and applications are now being accepted.
