This is good work and will help LRPD establish a more consistent pipeline of recruits coming into the program to help smooth out the workforce numbers. Building this pipeline is essential, not only to get newly trained officers in the community but to also allow for dismissal of those who are not fit to serve those they protect. It's a key component of establishing a code of conduct within the force that matches the community they serve.

With over $5k in no strings bonus and a law enforcement certification in their pocket, I wonder how many will actually be LRPD officers a year after graduation.
