San Francisco Police Academy’s 268th Recruit, 37th Regional Class Swearing In

The San Francisco Police Department’s 268th Academy and 37th Regional class were today sworn in by San Francisco Police Chief William Scott and San Francisco Sheriff Paul Miyamoto. For the first time in recent history, there was not a public graduation ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic and shelter in place order.  The class is comprised of 15 recruits (12 males and three females) and three San Francisco Sheriff’s Department deputies (all male).

The 268th graduating class has seven members who have earned Bachelor’s degrees and one has earned an Associate’s degree.  Five graduates served in the military- two in the U.S. Marine Corps, two in the Army and one in the Coast Guard.  Members of the class have previously been employed as a public safety dispatcher, security personnel, electricians, plumbers, food service workers, retail associates and more.

Several graduates speak fluently in Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Tagalog.

Following the swearing-in, the newly sworn San Francisco Police Department officers will begin a 16-week field-training program at various district stations.
