Recently, members of the Covington Police Department had the honor of attending the Slidell Police Department’s Regional Police Training Academy where five of Covington Police Departments recruits have attended for the past 18 weeks.

The CPD is honored to announce our newest POST Certified Officers:

We are extremely proud of our new officers and they now will begin their 16 week field training program where they will build upon what they have learned in the Academy.
We would like to thank the members of the Slidell Police Department and the training staff for providing quality training to our officers!
Please join us in congratulating these five new officers and welcome them to the CPD family!
