SHERIFF’S ACADEMY TO GRADUATE CADETS WEDNESDAY

     The Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department will graduate nine cadets Wednesday, Nov. 21, during a ceremony scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. inside the Commission Chambers of the Doña Ana County Government Center, 845 N. Motel Boulevard. 
The event will include the administration of the oaths of office, signifying the official transition from cadets to law-enforcement officers. 
     At graduation, each cadet will have successfully completed a 21-week law enforcement academy through the sheriff’s department, which includes intensive training in patrol functions, proper arrest procedures, DWI training, physical agility, firearms qualifications, extensive use-of-force training and other necessary skills required on the job. 
All cadets subsequently enter a 14-week probationary field-training period before they become full-fledged deputies within the department. 
     Wednesday’s guest speaker will be Stephan Marshall, director of the New Mexico Department of Public Safety. 
The 23rd graduating class of the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department law enforcement academy includes: Jenoside Barnes, Jacob Bridges, Chipper Campos, Gilbert Garcia, Michael Hogue, Francisco Marrufo, Aaron Martinez, Abel Sanchez, and Armando Valenzuela, Jr.
