Academy Class 203 - Final Roll Call

Academy Class 203 graduated yesterday. Tradition held strong as Class 203 held their final roll call as the sun rose above the police academy. Academy Classes 204, 205, 206 and Class 207 (who were there for orientation) watched Class 203 with pride, knowing that they too will soon be performing their final roll call. All the cadet classes will stand in formation during roll call and will announce their names one by one very quickly. Throughout training, roll calls are done the same way every time, every morning. However, on graduation day, such as Class 203, it is done a little differently with each cadet of Class 203 slowing down and pronouncing their name loudly and proudly. Congratulations 203, make us proud.

Wow! I was there and watching this still awes me.

This may be your best yet, Mike; seamless editing.

I can't say thanks enough for all you've done for the cadets, applicants, and academy staff since you started your blog sixteen months ago. Keep up the good work!

Thank you so much for the compliments LT. I will miss seeing you out there, but I know that the city will be a safer place with your guidance over the many cadets you have helped train and put on the streets. I have said it before and I will say it again, without the support of you and other supervisors and academy staff, none of this would be possible. So I thank you sir. Good luck in your new assignement.
