SHERIFF TO GRADUATE SEVEN RESERVE DEPUTIES

SHERIFF TO GRADUATE SEVEN RESERVE DEPUTIES

           Seven new Doña Ana County Sheriff reserve deputies will graduate Wednesday Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. in the Commission Chambers of the Doña Ana County Government Center at 845 N. Motel Blvd., in Las Cruces.

            Reserve deputies receive more than 300 hours of training in various areas of law enforcement, including firearms, physical fitness, defensive tactics and legal coursework. This academy began training in April.

            In order to be considered for the reserve deputy academy, each applicant must be a U.S. citizen, at least 21 years of age, and must pass both a background check and a polygraph test.

            Reserve deputies assist the sheriff’s office on an all-volunteer basis and are required to be on patrol 10 hours per month. Typically, reserve deputies are available for assistance in securing crime scenes or transporting detainees to the Doña Ana County Detention Center.

            Those who are expected to participate in graduation ceremonies are Ramon Montijo, Sergio Gotbeter, Paul Sanchez, Carla Breen, Richard Steven, Sergio Contreras and Keelin Boulware.

            Doña Ana County Sheriff Todd Garrison will deliver the commencement address.
