APD welcomes fresh cadet class

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Last week, the Austin Police Department held commencement ceremonies for the 136th cadet class at the AISD Performing Arts Center. This ceremony was the culmination of a 30-week training program that taught them legal issues, driving, crisis intervention, community policing, leadership, defensive tactics and fitness. Interim Police Chief Brian Manley was on hand to “conduct an inspection” of the cadets before the ceremony, according to a city press release. He then administered the Oath of Office, welcoming the cadets to their new careers. During the ceremony, the academy also named an Honor Cadet and gave out its Humanitarian Award.
