Forty-three new police officers will graduate Friday as part of the 253rd Basic/34th Regional Academy Class. Thirty-nine of the graduates will become San Francisco officers, and four will join the Oakland Police Department,

The class, which has spent the last 34 weeks in training, is a diverse one. A multitude of languages are spoken by the new officers—including Spanish, Samoan, Cantonese, Farsi, Turkish and Vietnamese.

Eighteen of the graduates possess Bachelor’s Degrees, one was a former paramedic, and six served in the military as members of the US Army, Airforce and Marines.

The graduation ceremony will take place at the Scottish Rite Auditorium at 6:00 p.m. Following the ceremony, San Francisco’s newest officers will begin a 16-week field training program at various district stations.
