31 cadets to graduate

College of the Redwoods will hold its 119th Basic Law Enforcement Academy graduation on Thursday, June 15, at 1:00 p.m. in the CR Theater on the Eureka main campus.

Thirty-one cadets will participate in this class ceremony. Of those graduating, twenty-four have been hired by various law enforcement departments and others are in different stages of the selection processes, some with multiple agencies.

The 119th class started in January. “These cadets have done a tremendous job; excelling both academically and with the spirit of community service. They’ve clearly demonstrated they have what it takes to become not only law enforcement officers, but tremendous members of their respective communities,” said CR Basic Law Enforcement Academy Coordinator Sandi Petersen.

The 120th CR Basic Law Enforcement Academy starts Monday, July 10, 2017 and is quickly filling up.
