The graduates successfully completed four weeks of academy training and will undergo an additional five weeks of field training. Before becoming a detention officer, the recruits participated in a one-day testing process that included a written examination, physical agility test and interviews before a three-member panel. The next Detention Officer Recruit testing process is scheduled for April 10. Anyone interested can contact the Mohave County Human Resources at 928-753-0736.
