A recently hired Hopkinsville Police Officer has graduated from the police academy.
A news release says Officer Spencer Loftus graduated from the Department of Criminal Justice Training Friday. The training was on the campus of Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond and provides instruction to all officers in the commonwealth.
The course is 18 weeks long and deals with all aspects of being a police officer. Officer Loftus will now be assigned to a training officer for the next few months until he becomes comfortable in transitioning his academy knowledge to the streets.
