One Last Time for 204



Click Play Above

Academy Class 204 graduates tonight! Tradition held strong as Class 204 held their final roll call as the sun rose above the police academy this morning. Academy Classes 205, 206, and 207 watched Class 204 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 204, it is done a little differently with each cadet of Class 204 slowing down and pronouncing their name loudly and proudly. Congratulations 204, make us proud.
