The new officers began a weeklong orientation with Fulton Police Sept. 3. They began police academy training Sept. 9.
The officers are scheduled to attend the Mohawk Valley Police Academy in Utica for approximately 20 weeks.
At the conclusion of the police academy training, the officers will return to the Fulton Police Department, where they will receive 12 weeks of field training before they are eligible to begin solo patrol.
