BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) -- A new class of Baton Rouge Police officers hits the streets tonight. The five new officers graduated from the BRPD Post-Academy this morning.
They come from all over the state and all have experience in law enforcement.
50 veteran officers applied, but just six recruits were accepted into the Post Academy. Just late Thursday afternoon one more was eliminated, leaving the 2011 class with five graduates.
Interim Chief Charles Mondrick meets with Mayor Holden next week to discuss recruiting the next class of potential BRPD officers.
