On Friday, April 15, 2016, the Dallas Police Department’s Recruit Class #347 graduated from Basic Training Academy and are now assigned to the Patrol Bureau. On July, 29, 2015, 29 recruit officers walked into Basic Training with one goal in mind, to be a Dallas Police Officer. Out of those 29 only 23 officers along with one Dallas Fire Rescue Arson Investigator survived the strenuous 9 months of training. We are very proud of our new police officers. As their new journey awaits, we are sure they have the right tools needed in order to operate in the streets of Dallas and keep our citizens safe. The video below is just a small part of the vigorous training each recruit endured during their time at the Academy.
