KINGMAN – Jim McCabe, Mohave County sheriff, congratulated and welcomed a class of nine detention officer graduates Aug. 17.

During the ceremony McCabe said, “You play a major role at the Adult Detention facility and congratulations as you are about to embark on a career full of challenges.”

The graduation class included Tiffany Bui, Xavier Camacho, Joshua Cook, Walter Durham, Jesse Hall, Calvin Murphy, Jon Pifer, Alexander Ordonez and Arianna Zepeda. The graduates successfully completed four weeks of academy training and will now undergo an additional five weeks of field training.

Before becoming a detention officer these recruits participated in a one-day testing process, which included a written examination, a physical agility test and an interview before a three-member panel.

The next detention officer recruit testing process is scheduled for Oct. 3. Anyone interested should contact the Mohave County Human Resources at (928) 753-0736.
