This photo is of the first formal Houston Police Department cadet class known as the "Class of '39." The Class of '39 graduated on August 16, 1939 and was under the direction of Captain L.D. Morrison. The academy was five weeks in length. They were instructed in Authority of the Police, Arrest Search and Seizure, First Aide, English Composition and Grammar, Firearms, Physical Agility, and Geography of Houston: Streets, Hospitals and Landmarks. Class numbers were not given out until 1948 when Academy Class Number One (1) was introduced.
