The New York City Police Department welcomed its newest class of police academy recruits to the force at a swearing-in ceremony in Queens Wednesday morning.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said this class is larger than previous years due to concerns about a high rate of attrition.

"We had large hires in 1993," Kelly said. "Obviously, some of these people have attrited out already, but they're concerned about it. So this number was supposed to be higher in January and a smaller number in July. They were flipped. So this is larger than the immediate attrition estimate."

More than 1,200 recruits were sworn into service.

They will begin their six months of police academy training later this week. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
