Congratulations to Deputy Fidelis Asonglefac, Deputy Dianna Gethers, Deputy Austin Grant, Deputy Francis Laigo, Deputy William Powell and Deputy Michael Spitzer on their academy graduation!

The new deputies successfully completed five months of intensive and thorough training, including emergency vehicle operations, firearms training, defensive and control tactics, de-escalation techniques, crash investigation, basic legal training, jail and courthouse procedures, and other important areas.

Because of safety precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, members of Session 143 did not have a traditional academy graduation ceremony. Since completing their final exams in December, the deputies have returned to the Sheriff’s Office and are continuing with field training before beginning their permanent assignments.
