Five New Costa Mesa Cops Hit The Streets

In a press release yesterday the Costa Mesa Police Department announced the graduation of five officers from the Orange County Sheriff's Regional Training Academy.  According to the information provided, 44 officers, from 14 local police departments, were honored during the ceremony last night for officers who successfully completed the six-month training program designed to prepare officers for the streets.  Course instruction included tactical firearms use, arrest and control techniques, laws of arrest, physical training, emergency vehicle operation and practical scenario-based field problems.
Costa Mesa Police Department's five attending officers all successfully completed academy instruction.  Graduating Costa Mesa Police Officers included Officer David Frankle, Officer Zachary Blythe, Officer Joseph Carboni, Officer Jesse Chartier and Officer Trevor Jones.

Officer Frankle was nominated by his class peers as their class president.  Frankle was also ranked as the overall #1 graduate in the class.  He was presented with the Outstanding Officer Award and Written Examination Award to recognize his distinguished performance earning the highest average exam scores, and earning the highest number of overall points in academy performance.

Kudos to these fine young men for their completion of training.  They will now work with training officers in the CMPD before working independently on the streets of our city.  Kudos to Officer David Frankle for his outstanding performance and leadership.  We welcome them to our city and look forward to meeting them as they do their part to keep us safe.  They will start to work Monday and spend at least the next four months under the guidance of a Field Training Officer before they begin to work on their own.

These people are out there 24/7 while some people sit around lying and slurping Diet Coke.

Thank you.
