From White to Blue

Academy Class 197 graduated yesterday. Tradition held strong as Class 197 held their final roll call as the sun rose above the police academy. Unprecedented, all five current academy classes were in attendance, Class 198, 199, 200 and Class 201 (who were there for orientation) watched Class 197 with pride, knowing that they too will soon be performing their last roll call. Later that night the white uniform shirts changed to blue as they marched into the gym for the last time to have their badges pinned to their shirts to complete their transition into one of Houston's finest.

Congratulations Class 1-9-7 !

What pride HPD has. Love this blog. My buddy from Class 197 just told me about the video. I read blogs all the time and did not know about this one until just now. What a cool blog...makes me want to be a cop. This has been added to my favorites.
