Six Arcadia Police Recruits graduated from the Rio Hondo Police Academy today.

Six Arcadia Police Recruits have graduated with class 206 of the Rio Hondo Police Academy.  Pictured below from left to right are Recruits Julius Santos, Dylan Morrill, Jose Robles Jr., Michael Isidro, Miguel Marquez, and Gio Capra, with Chief Bob Guthrie (Center), and Captains Larry Goodman (Left) and Paul Foley (Right).

The recruits completed over 1,000 hours of training and instruction over 5 ½ months (January 28th through July 12th).  Recruit Capra earned the highest academic percentage of the class as well as the highest overall class ranking, which includes academics, report writing, firearms, physical fitness, scenario testing.  For his efforts, Recruit Capra was awarded the Honor Cadet recognition, with Recruit Santos finishing second overall, and Recruit Morrill fifth overall.  Class 206 started with 41 Cadets, and 24 graduated.

Presenting the colors at the graduation ceremony was the Arcadia Police Department Honor Guard, consisting of Field Training Officers Daniel Tea, Carlos Quiroz, and Danny Daryaie, as well as Officer Michael Turrell who also serves at the academy as a Recruit Training Officer.

The Recruits will be sworn-in as Police Officers and start their 2-week department orientation Monday July 16th.  They will then be assigned to the Field Training Program where they will complete an additional 800 hours of field training before reaching the required standards to become a solo patrol officer.
The Arcadia Police Department would like to congratulate our six new officers on a job well done, wish them continued success in the field training program, and we look forward to working with them for decades to come.
