The graduates have received intense training, which began in January and lasted 23 weeks. The Worcester Police Academy training curriculum included classroom study, physical training, first responder training, applied patrol procedures and scenario-based exercises. The classes were taught by Worcester Police Academy staff instructors, experienced Worcester police officers from various units in the department and guest instructors-including law enforcement officials and civilians from outside agencies.
The media is welcome to attend.
