Sept. 25, 2015 – The 6th Police Officer Trainee Cycle received their certificates of completion, badges, and recited the Oath of Police Officer during a ceremony at Government House this morning.
“Congratulations! I know it was a difficult process to make it this far,” said Governor Eddie Baza Calvo. “I’m so grateful to all of you for your commitment to the force and to the people of Guam. We look forward to seeing you in our communities.”
Governor Calvo also acknowledged the families of the 15 police trainees who graduated.
“To your families, thank you for the sacrifice you are making,” the Governor said. “While these officers are out patrolling the island helping to maintain a peaceful society, they will have peace of mind knowing that they have people who love them and who pray for their safety.”
Several of the graduates were acknowledged for their exemplary performance:
