The Dallas Police Department is pleased to announce the graduation of Academy Class #352. The class started the academy on June 29, 2016, just days before the tragic events unfolded on July 7th. Twenty-three brave young men and women, many of whom were born and raised in the Dallas area, rose to the challenge. In spite of the current challenges facing law enforcement officers, the recruits completed the arduous nine month training academy to earn the title of Dallas Police Officer. The graduation marks only the beginning of their journey as the officers head to their new duty assignments to begin field training and working to keep the City of Dallas safe. Congratulations Class 352!
