Ten (10) San Angelo Police Department Cadets will formally graduate from the police academy during a public ceremony slated for 3:00 p.m. Friday, March 8, 2019, at the McNease Convention Center, 501 Rio Concho Drive.
The new officers are Jacob Anderson, Amanda Bohannan, Zane Daniel, Ricardo Dominguez, Garry Hamilton, Kelsey Hernandez, Philip Jensen, Jonathan Montana, Joshua Quintero, and Dora Torres.
The Graduation Ceremony marks the successful completion of an extensive one thousand eighteen (1,018) hour academy learning basic law enforcement skills paired with a multi-week in-service training program. During the ceremony, the Cadets will be sworn in as Apprentice Police Officers (APO’s). The Department oath will be administered by Police Chief Frank Carter.
Following Friday’s commencement ceremony, the Apprentice Police Officers will begin a sixteen (16) week Police Training Program, which is designed to teach the APO’s how best to use the skills acquired during the academy and in-service training.
