Santa Cruz Police Officer Ryan Kiar Hits the Streets Solo
SANTA CRUZ -- Santa Cruz Chief of Police Kevin Vogel is pleased to announce Officer Ryan Kiar successfully completed the Department's field training program today, April 13, 2011. This is the in-house Departmental training program in which a police academy graduate is trained by an experienced Santa Cruz Police officer. This is a rigorous program that takes 4-5 months to complete, depending on the progress of the newly-hired officer. We are pleased to have Officer Kiar complete the training program and join the Santa Cruz Police Department as a solo beat officer. Please join the entire staff of the Santa Cruz Police Department in congratulating Officer Ryan Kiar on this outstanding achievement.
