By Sheriff Scott Henriod WPCSO

This week’s Sheriff’s Corner I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Deputy Chase Odgers and Deputy Ernie Rivera III on graduating from the Nevada Peace’s Officers Standards and Training (POST Academy). Both deputies graduated from the academy on November 16. The graduation ceremony was held in Carson City, NV where both deputies received there POST certificates.

Deputy Odgers and Rivera went through an extensive training program for seventeen weeks at the POST Academy in Carson City. Training included, physical fitness, emergency vehicle operation, law and legal procedures, firearms training, patrol operations and procedures, defensive and arrest control tactics, functions of police officers and numerous other training courses. Both deputies earned high remarks from their training supervisors.

Both deputies will be assigned to work as patrol deputies. The Sheriff’s Office once again congratulates Deputy Odgers and Rivera on their accomplishments and look forward to having them represent White Pine County.
