Oakland Police Department welcomes 38 new officers
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Oakland will welcome 38 new police officers fresh out of the academy on Monday morning.
The newly-sworn officers graduated last week from Oakland's first police academy in nearly five years.
They will patrol the streets with their field training officers.
The recent graduates have been meeting with community groups and learning about court-mandated reforms the department is still trying to satisfy.
Another police academy began last Monday with 51 recruits.
