For the first time in more than two years, a new class of Tulsa police officers graduated from the academy Friday.

Starting this weekend, the 40 newly sworn officers will begin 16 weeks of field training with other officers before they start patrolling on their own.

“Their addition will go a long way toward fulfilling our mission of providing a safe and secure environment for the city of Tulsa,” Police Chief Chuck Jordan said in his speech to the class and their families.

Including the rookies who graduated Friday, there are now 756 sworn officers on the force, Officer Leland Ashley said.
