      MAYOR VINCENT C. GRAY AND POLICE CHIEF CATHY L. LANIER TO WELCOME NEW RECRUITS TO POLICE ACADEMY

      Thirty-five recruits begin training at the academy this week.

      WHAT/WHO: Mayor Vincent C. Gray and Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier will welcome 35 new recruits to the Metropolitan Police Academy. Their training will last 28 weeks.

      WHEN/WHERE: Monday, October 3, 2011, 8:30 a.m.

      BACKGROUND: Mayor Vincent C. Gray recently announced that funding is now in place for 300 new police officers, fulfilling a promise he made earlier this year during the budget cycle. The funding for new officers began at the start of the new fiscal year on October 1, 2011, and the Metropolitan Police Department is ready to train 35 new recruits this week. Public safety is one of the top priorities of the Gray administration, and this is a substantial step in rebuilding the size of the police force to better serve the citizens of the District of Columbia.
