Mesquite Police Academy graduates seven recruits
The Mesquite Police Department (MPD) graduated seven recruits from its Basic Police Officer Course (BPOC) on January 18. Less than four percent of the 2,664 law enforcement agencies in Texas have a training academy. MPD has graduated 52 recruits from its BPOC since the training academy began in 2013.
The graduates are Hanae Elmamoun – Kingdom of Morocco; Caleb Randolph Parker – Mesquite, TX; Brandon Davis – Plano, TX; Joshua J. Osburn – Allen, TX; Daniel James Ninedorf – Madison, WI; Celeste Quintero Martinez – Mesquite, TX; Danielle Larrison-Argueta – Keller, TX.
The seven new police officers completed 25 weeks of the BPOC program. They will now begin a 17-week field training program. Upon successful completion of the field training program the police officers will be assigned to patrol duties.
