Calaveras Sheriff’s Office Hires Four Deputies

(San Andreas, CA) Sheriff Gary Kuntz swore in four of his office’s newest sheriff’s deputies. Deputies Jeff Podvin and Zach Glanville were sworn in on May 6, 2013, Deputy Donald Kelling was sworn in on May 21, 2013, and Deputy Kyle Johnson was sown in on June 4, 2013. All four deputies, after having completed a 2-week orientation phase will begin a 16-week field training program. The training program is an extension of their law enforcement academy training, and concentrates on officer safety, sheriff’s office policies and procedures, criminal investigation procedures, and numerous other aspects that the deputies will encounter on a day to day basis. Upon completion of field training they will be qualified as “solo” patrol deputies.

Prior to coming to the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office he worked four years as a corrections officer for the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office jail.
