BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Bakersfield Law Enforcement Training Academy graduated and swore in members as law enforcement officers on June 18, 15 graduated in total.

“You are entering the most noble of professions. I am proud to be a Bakersfield Police Officer. We have seen how the actions of a single police officer can impact an individual, a community and a country," said Chief Terry. "You must be centered on what is important. Service, justice, and fundamental fairness must guide your actions. Ask yourself, will what I am about to do or say make my community a safer, stronger place for everyone?”

The officers will now move on to a three-week Mini-Academy, followed by a 17 week Field Officer Training Program.
