It is graduation season here in South Texas, and yesterday we had a graduation ceremony of our own.
Congratulations to the 13 police officers, deputies, and communications officers who graduated from the Field Training Officer Course instructed by Sgt. Luker.
This 24-hour course provides the students with the tools necessary to become effective field training officers for their department. The Field Training Officer is arguably one of the most influential roles in any department because they are the mentors and the teachers of all new officers and dispatchers.
A special thanks goes out to Candlewood Suites of Aransas Pass for allowing us to use their facilities and their meeting room for this course.
