A newly hired officer is one step closer to protecting and serving the citizens of San Angelo after graduating from a local police academy.
On Friday, June 20th, at 08:30 a.m., the San Angelo Police Department made the transition from trainee to Apprentice Police Officer official for Benjamin Pollitt. Officer Pollitt recently graduated from the Basic Police Officer's Course offered by the Concho Valley Council of Governments in May, and was hired soon after to begin a career with San Angelo Police Department.
Officer Pollitt successfully completed an extensive six hundred sixty three (663) hour academy learning basic law enforcement skills. He will now be assigned to a fifteen (15) week Police Training Program with a veteran officer.
The Police Training Program is designed to teach the APO's how best to use the skills acquired in the academy and in-service training.
