  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 in May 2011 as a Jail Division deputy.  His work ethic and ability to handle inmates resulted in him being sent for law enforcement certification in late 2013. 


  Deputy Burgos was hired in October 2006 as a Jail Division deputy where he was an assistant shift supervisor and assisted other deputies and agencies as an interpreter of the Spanish language, which he speaks fluently. 


  Sheriff Anderson congratulated Deputies Lester and Burgos on their accomplishments.
