 “After much effort, these cadets become the first generation of graduates under the current administration. It is the first time that a local municipal government bets on the training and specialization of our own police force,” said Benavides.

The graduates were 17 cadets for the Security Police and 10 for the Transit department.

Additionally, the commission promoted 17 officers: 12 as third class policemen, two as second class policemen, and 3 more as first class policemen.
