Police Recruits Take 'Tell-All' Exam

36 Lubbock police recruits are awaiting the results of their state exam. If the recruits do not pass this test, it's back to classroom.

Lubbock has one of the highest passing rates for the state exam, but to begin field training, recruits need a 70% or better on the test. The exam is 250 questions about Texas state law, penal code and scenarios.

The department says it would be a great benefit to have all 36 recruits on the streets. Academy instructor CPL Sharon Casey says, "All the man power makes a tremendous difference in response times and the amount of work we get done. We get more proactive policing done than reactive policing."

The police graduation will be Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center. Coming up that night, we'll show you the journey of three police recruits as they go through the academy from start to finish.
