Sixty-four Boston Police recruits have graduated from the academy and will join the ranks of the 2,072-officer force next week.
Boston Police Academy Recruit Class 49-10 is the first to graduate in three years and is a diverse group of men and women who range from about 23 to 39 years old. Among them is a biologist who wants to give back to the city she grew up in; a small-town officer who applied every two years for nearly a decade and earned a master’s degree while waiting; and a Cape Verdean native who grew up skeptical of the intimidating officers in his homeland.
