BCSO Welcomes Two New Deputies

Written by  Wednesday, 02 April 2014 16:02

Deputies Maurice Lester and Marcos Burgos recently completed their three month Field Training Program and were certified as fit for solo patrol duties. According to Anderson, The Field Training Program pairs newly certified deputies with state-certified Field Training Deputies for three months.  During these months the new deputies are evaluated on a daily basis and operate as part of a two-man unit with the Field Training Deputy.  The perspective deputies then spend two weeks under the observation of the field training deputy until they are deemed ready. The Field Training Program was designed to bridge the gap between the Police Academy and actual law enforcement field work for the deputies.  Deputies Lester and Burgos are also the first deputies to obtain law enforcement certification under a new BCSO program which encourages Jail Division deputies to obtain that distinction.  Deputy Lester was hired as a Jail Division deputy in May 2011; Deputy Burgos has been with the jail division since October 2006.
