HUMANITARIAN CRISIS - FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN HELP AFGHANISTAN





Chief Chris Perkins

The Roanoke Police Training Academy welcomes 12 new recruits today, and Chief Chris Perkins says it will be the most diverse class ever:  three recruits are black and two others are women. Perkins says it is the result of changes in recruitment and hiring procedures — and the academy itself has seen recent changes in its training procedures. More on that from WFIR’s Evan Jones.
