Friday was graduation day for 16 men who have a full time job but also wanted to complete certification as law enforcment officers.
The first-ever alternative training took place on four weeknights and eight hours on Saturday for the last eight months.
They were supervised by Brazos County Health Department’s emergency preparedness coordinator, Mike Paulus.
Paulus says some are becoming reserve officers and others are taking full-time positions with local law enforcement agencies.
While all the graduates paid tuition, Paulus also said funding was supplied by the The Brazos Valley Council of Governments.
Also participating were the Capital Area Council of Governments Regional Law Enforcement Academy and a number of local law enforcement officers.
