The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office recently sponsored a 126-hour reserve academy.
Six reserves attended the academy from Douglas County, and four from the Carson City Sheriff’s Office.
Sgt. Pat Brooks said the academy provides basic information for an aspiring deputy to begin a law enforcement career.
“All who attended complete the same background and physical standards as a full-time deputy with some having the expectations of becoming full-time,” Brooks said.
“It is a great way to know what law enforcement is all about,” he added.
The graduates were honored at a ceremony Wednesday at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office training room.
The new graduates are David Vale, Dan Wold, George Daghlian, Jake Smith, Dan Cannoy and Seth Feathers from Douglas County, and Wen Wei, Steven Cornfield, Raul Mazariego and Justin Moore from Carson City.
