Welcome Our 3 Newest Officers - SCPD Graduates 3 From the Police Academy Today

The Santa Cruz Police Department is proud to introduce our 3 newest Police Officers:
Jared Johnson

Elliott Rock 

Frederick Yoon
All three graduated today from the Basic Police Academy Class #SB133, at the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium. 

Their graduation culminated more than 880 hours of intense training over a 22 week period.   During the Academy, the recruits completed testing on 43 different learning domains, as well as physical and scenario-based testing. Chief Vogel conducted their official "swearing-in" administering the Oath of Office.  
The new officers will now undergo a couple of weeks of orientation before they are assigned to our 18-week Field Training program.  During this program, they will be paired with a Field Training Officer and evaluated each day on their performance.  Upon completion of the Field Training program, the new officers will be assigned to a patrol team to work as a solo beat officer. 

We are proud of their accomplishment and we are excited to see them working in our community!

Please join us in a hearty welcome for our three newest Santa Cruz Police Officers.
