Looks like a bunch of highly qualified folks. Best of luck to each one of them as they go through their FTO program. We can expect to see more Police recruits in the future with both college degrees and military experience. The urban combat exposure some these folks have gone though in Iraq will carry over to their law enforcement. Which, should make for good officers. 984 hours is a lot of training. When I attended a Police Academy in 1995 it was only 460 hours.
