LAPD Academy Graduation NA13078rf

WHAT:
Los Angeles Police Department Recruit Officer Graduation Ceremony for Class 10-12

WHEN:
Friday, May 15, 2013
9 a.m.

WHERE:
Los Angeles Police Academy in Elysian Park
1880 North Academy Drive
Los Angeles 90012

WHO:
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa
LAPD Chief of Police Charlie Beck
Representatives from the LAPD Board of Commissioners
LAPD Command Staff and Special Guests

DETAILS:
The Los Angeles Police Department will graduate 39 police officers, with 30 males and nine females.  The ethnic breakdown of the graduates is as follows: 10 Caucasians, 24 Hispanics, three Koreans and two African Americans.  Graduating officers have completed 920 hours of training over the course of 24 weeks. One of the graduates will be a public and safety officer for the University of Southern California.

This will be Mayor’s last recruit graduation he attends before leaving office.  When he came into office July 1, 2005, his goal was to get the LAPD to over 10,000 police officers.  Today the number of police officers hovers around that amount, but fluctuates based on attrition, mostly due to retirement.

As of May 15, 2013, 4,075 officers have been hired during Mayor Villaraigosa's administration. This represents a total of 79 recruit classes. However, one more class will begin on June 17th. That final class will be between 25 and 50 officers.
