HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Members of the Hattiesburg Police Department recruit class 32 spent Friday participating in a community service project helping to beautify the Hub City.

“I have five recruits that are out placing pine straw around the shrubbery in front of the Train Depot,” said Hattiesburg Police Director of Training, Lt. Chris Johnson.

The recruit class started with 13 and now Johnson says they are left with the “top five” of the class.

The recruits also helped with a small demolition project at Mt. Olive Baptist Church on Country Club Road.

“I have been cooperating and working with individuals and training individuals that don't mind going above and beyond their duties. The community service is strictly volunteer and they had no reservation in their minds or heart to come out and do this, they were glad to do it,” said Johnson.

The recruit class is scheduled to graduate next Friday, May 1st at 2 p.m. at the Hattiesburg Police and Fire Training Academy.
