A On December 15, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Public Safety Regional Training Center — in partnership with San Bernardino Valley College — hosted its 203rd graduation ceremony. In attendance were hundreds of friends and family members who came to celebrate the 74 graduates onstage: the college’s second-largest graduating class ever. 

After completing an intensive, 23-week program, these graduates will be joining local law enforcement agencies, including the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and municipal police departments in Anaheim, Corona, Hemet, Montclair, Ontario, Pomona, and San Bernardino.

Graduates were congratulated by fellow officers and San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon.

“These men and women have chosen to pursue a profession in their commitment to bringing peace, righteousness and justice in making communities safer,” said Amelia Gonzales, an administrative employee with the program at San Bernardino Valley College. “We are very proud of every single graduate.” 

Congratulations, Wolverines!
