NORFOLK, Va. — The Norfolk police Department's largest and most diverse recruit class was sworn in Thursday night as new patrol officers.

Among those taking the oath were a 20-year-old mother who stands 5 feet tall and a 21-year veteran of the New York City and Rochester, N.Y., police departments, pinning on a new badge after 3½ years of retirement.
