ACPD Recruits Graduate from Police Academy

Arlington County Police Department recruits at a graduation ceremony

Twenty-one Arlington County Police Department recruits graduated from Northern Virginia’s regional police academy late last month.

A graduation ceremony for the recruits — 17 men and 4 women — was held at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts. The recruits will now be required to participate in 12 additional weeks of field training before becoming fulling certified by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services.

Arlington’s next police academy class is expected to be much smaller, we’re told.
