Twenty-five new officers were sworn into the Atlanta Police Department the morning of February 19, 2020 in a private Swear-In Ceremony at the Police Training Academy surrounded by friends and loved ones. Many of the new officers come from a law enforcement family and some of the attendees even had the chance to pin the officers’ badges on them during the celebration.
After the ceremony, officers were issued their guns and badges and will now be working closely alongside an experienced officer for nine weeks to complete their field training. A more formal graduation ceremony will be held soon. This marks the first swear-in ceremony of the year and we are excited to welcome our next round of new officers. Congratulations, Class 264!
