The 61 new officers graduated from the Westchester County Police Academy during a ceremony held on Friday, May 26 at the SUNY Purchase Performing Arts Center.
There, they received their diplomas before a packed audience, marking the end of a rigorous 21 weeks of training that required them to master the physical and academic demands of the academy.
County Executive George Latimer, Deputy County Executive Ken Jenkins, and Acting Public Safety Commissioner Terrance Raynor all congratulated the graduates and remarked on their futures.
"We send you out into the community to do something a majority of people can’t do," Latimer said, adding, "We thank you for the service you will provide to your communities and the people of Westchester.”
