NOPD recruit class graduation

Updated:

New Orleans, La, - The New Orleans Police Department beefs up its manpower with the graduation of a new recruit class.

23 new recruits graduated Friday from the NOPD training academy.

The graduation comes as the city council just approved the 2014 budget which funds 150 new officers and a recruitment campaign. 

Class #169 is the second recruit class hired since Superintendent Serpas was appointed by Mayor Landrieu that had to meet higher standards to be accepted as NOPD recruits.

Applicants had to have at least 60 hours of college credits, or the equivalent of two years of full service in the military.
