January 25, 2010 - Castle Rock Police Department
In a private ceremony on Monday the Castle Rock Police Department gave welcome to two of its newest members. In front of a group of family, friends, fellow officers, and invited guests Chief Bob Heuer administered the Oath of Office to Reserve Officer John Musso and Reserve Officer Steve Davidson.
This month, the officers completed the 440 hour basic reserve academy. The academy came to an official conclusion on January 20th when John and Steve successfully passed the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center comprehensive final exam.
The basic academy covered every topic from criminal law to cultural diversity. On top of the 440 hours of classroom instruction, the recruits were required to spend many hours at home and away from class studying and preparing for practical mock scenarios and a multitude of mid-term and final tests.
