New Deputies Graduate From Sheriff’s Santa Clarita Academy

Ten female and 44 male Deputy Sheriffs, as well as one female Police Officer and one male Police Officer from the California Department of Insurance, graduated from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Training Academy in Santa Clarita during ceremonies held Friday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

Bureau Chief Martin Gonzalez of the California Department of Insurance delivered inspirational remarks to the graduates and their guests.

As part of the graduation, a badge-pinning ceremony was conducted, with the new Deputies and Officers receiving their badges from a family member or loved one. After receiving their graduation certificates, the graduates were officially sworn in as peace officers by Sheriff Lee Baca.

In a special segment of the ceremony, Deputy Robert Young of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, a resident of Lancaster, was named the Honor Recruit.

This award is given to the recruit who achieves the highest numerical average based upon leadership qualities, academics, marksmanship, and physical performance throughout the training period. Additionally, Deputy Joshua Nemeth, of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, a resident of Palmdale, was acknowledged for graduating with the highest academic scores.
