PITTSBURGH, PA (Nov. 14, 2019) – The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police welcomed 34 new officers during a Graduation Ceremony for its most recent recruit class.
The class includes seven officers who previously worked for other agencies but chose to join the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.
"You will become representatives of this city and your mission. You will become role models for young children and the foundation of our communities," said Director Hissrich.
Before delivering the oath of office, Mayor Peduto told the graduating class what it truly means to be a Pittsburgh Police officer.
"It requires honor and integrity because you don't wear the uniform for you. You wear that uniform and that badge for everybody who wore it before you and everybody who will wear it after. There's a long, proud tradition within the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police."
