Eastern Division gets lion’s share of new cops

Posted: Saturday, December 18, 2021. 9:41 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Approximately 97 of the 220 new officers who graduated on Friday will be assigned to Eastern Police Division according to Commissioner of Police Chester Williams.

The rest will be distributed across the formations, approximately 10 to 12 each, but none will be sent to specialized units as part of a plan to allow them to learn general policing first before taking on specialized duties.

Every single one of the graduates passed their courses – other than those who washed out before the end of training, none were allowed to graduate if they failed any course.

Some will have to repeat field officer’s training but others found to have committed “irregularities” while out on training were sent home.

The Commissioner said he was proud of the fact that this group distinguished themselves over the course of seven months’ training and also managed not to contract COVID-19.

He attributes this to the revised curriculum instituted by Academic Dean Priscilla Brown Lopez and the work of the Academy’s team of instructors.

And yet, so many more are needed as according to the Commissioner as many as 100 officers have been lost this year due to various forms of attrition: death, illness, retirement, interdiction and suspension, and dismissal from the Department.

The newly minted officers will begin serving right away, swelling the force’s ranks to about 2,500.
