Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Cadet Class Participates in 9/11 Heroes Run
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX -- On September 07, 2019, the Cadets of the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Basic Police Officer Course (BPOC). Class A19-B, participated in the Houston 9/11 Heroes Run hosted by thel Travis Manion Foundation. The mission of the foundation ”activates and unites communities to honor the sacrifices of those heroes from September 11th and the wars since, to include veterans, active duty, first responder, and families of the fallen.” Proceeds from the event not only benefit the Travis Manion Foundation but also include the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association, Assist the Officer and Operation Lone Star.
To honor such a noble cause. Sheriff Rand Henderson graciously sponsored the registration fee of each Cadet and Academy Staff member that participated to show the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is dedicated to honoring public service and empowering our community along with the Deputies that serve it. This BPOC cadet class recently completed a rigorous 21 week schedule of classroom instruction and physical assessments, and is set to graduate on 17 September 2019. Each Cadet underwent a competitive application process consisting of both academic and physical testing which began several months prior to the start of the academy. This included background investigations, oral board interviews with Academy staff, polygraph exams and medical screenings.
Upon graduation, these newly commissioned Deputies immediately begin the Field Training Officer Program (FTO) and will be allocated across each of the three Patrol Precincts during an intensive 16 week training process.
