Update: Due to the chance of thunderstorms tomorrow morning, Run with the Chief has been cancelled. APD does not want to put our cadets, motor officers and our community at risk with the weather conditions potentially expected.
On Tuesday, December 19, 2017, the 137th and the 138th cadet classes of the Austin Police Department will participate in the traditional Chief’s Run.
APD command staff, executive staff and training academy personnel will join the 93 cadets on a run that will begin at 7 a.m. in the west parking lot of the Austin-American Statesman (305 South Congress Avenue) and continue northbound to the Texas Peace Officers Memorial on the State Capitol grounds. A walk in formation and an address to the cadets will follow the run.
The traditional Chief’s Run focuses on growing unity between the community and the department.
The cadets will be commissioned during graduation ceremonies on Friday, December 22, 2017 at 2 p.m. at the Great Hills Baptist Church, 10500 Jollyville Road.
