PIQUA — Christopher King, of Sidney, and Travis Frock, of New Bremen, were among 10 students who were honored by Edison State Community College for their completion in December of the Peace Officer Academy program.
The curriculum of the program is certified by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission and covered all aspects of law enforcement training, including administration, firearms, subject control and investigation.
“This was a good group of cadets,” said Joseph Mahan, Basic Peace Officer Academy Commander. “They put their minds to it and displayed the proper attitude to get through this program.
“The cadets are in class 33 hours a week, Monday through Friday 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and all day Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., for a total of 690 plus hours. They started July 5 and finished Dec. 2. This is truly a commitment on their part, since many have full time jobs, families, and the class requirements to work into their lives.”
