Kenner Police Department POST Academy class 13 graduates

 KENNER Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser is proud to announce that the Kenner Police Department’s Thirteenth Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) Academy class graduated on Friday, November 20, 2015. The academy began on August 3, 2015. Graduating recruits are as follows:

 Kenner Police Officer(s)- Daniel Aucoin, Brandon Davis, Alejandro Galvez, Eric Hill, Gabriel Marquez-Castro, Ashley Santini, Victoria Schoen, Carley Ward, and Joshua Zurita      

 Southeastern Louisiana University Police Officer- Jourdan Hatcher

 Westwego Police Officer(s) - Michael Louviere, and Yule Pouchie

 Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office Deputy- Bradford Marsalis

 Graduates 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.

 Graduates abided by strict codes of discipline while they received over 590 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.

 Graduates are 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.
