48 Police Recruits Set to Graduate Monday

A group of 48 police recruits from across Connecticut is set to graduate from training offered by a state agency that sets standards for being a police officer in the state.

The Police Officer Standards and Training Council, which runs the Connecticut Police Academy in Meriden, says the recruits from 35 police departments are scheduled to complete their training on Monday. A graduation ceremony is set for that evening at Central Connecticut State University's Welte Hall in New Britain.

The police recruits have completed 880 hours of basic training, including academic classes, practical skills, firearms, defensive tactics, patrol driving, motor vehicle law, penal code, as well as laws of arrest, search and seizure.
