In Metro's most diverse police academy class ever, seven candidates speak Spanish

The Tennessean reports that the incoming class at the Metro Police Academy is the most diverse in its history. The class of 57 is 46% minority and 35% female. The present police force is approximately 15% minority and 10% female. Seven students in this class speak Spanish.

"For some of the candidates in the incoming class, such as Juan Carlos Cuesta-Galarce, becoming a police officer would be the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. ... He said he looks forward to becoming a bridge between the Hispanic and non-Hispanic communities of Nashville."
