Police reserves graduate from the academy



“The reserves augment the regular, full-time police officers and deputies,” McKinney said. “They are completely volunteer. Their time is volunteered to the city or county they represent. Once they have graduated from the C.L.E.E.T. Academy, they have the same powers as a full-time officer does after they complete their field training officer program.”
Following graduation, the reservists are assigned back to their original agency where they will be required to complete additional training before they can work alone.
“They will go back to their department,” McKinney said. “Most of them will have a prescribed field training program where they ride with a senior training officer. They will put them through a six- to 12-week training program before they become a car commander working on their own.”
The reservists came to participate in the class from Garvin County, Waurika Police Department, Geronimo Police Department and Fletcher Police Department. McKinney presented each of the graduates with their diplomas.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
