Kenner Police Department POST Academy class 12 to graduate

 KENNER Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser is proud to announce that the Kenner Police Department’s Twelfth Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) Academy class will graduate on Friday, May 1st, 2015, at 10 a.m. at the Rivertown Heritage Hall, located at 303 Williams Blvd., Kenner, LA. The academy began on January 12, 2015. Graduating recruits are as follows:

 Kenner Police Officer(s)- Alexander Barnes, Zachary Babin, Ian Cantrell, Ismael Cornejo, Daniel Grayson, Nathan Hodges, Kyle Nugent, Gloisha Osburn, and Katherine Smith.    

 Harbor Police Officer- Sean VanCourt

 Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office Deputy- Ryan Warner

 Applicants accepted into the academy have successfully completed a complex and stringent hiring process, which includes passing an extensive background investigation, psychological exams, physical fitness assessment and final selection through an oral Administrative Review Board process.

 Students in the academy must abide by strict codes of discipline while they receive over 600 hours of training in various aspects of police work, such as legal issues, first aid, firearms, investigations, traffic services, patrol practices, report writing, community relations, self-defense tactics, physical training and defensive driving. P.O.S.T. requires a minimum of 360 hours of instruction.

 Upon graduation, officers will be P.O.S.T. certified, meaning that they have taken and passed the P.O.S.T. exam and have sufficiently completed the basic training requirements. Louisiana law requires all police officers to be P.O.S.T. certified within one year of being hired. Upon completing the basic academy, new Kenner Police Officers must also successfully complete a 16-week field training program, working with a veteran police officer in the KPD Patrol Division.  The news media are invited to attend the graduation.
