Santa Cruz Police Department announced the graduation of Lt. Bernie Escalante from the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training Command College.
"Folks, this is no easy feat," writes the department. "Command College is a grueling Master’s level course lasting 18 months."
"In fact, to even be accepted, there is a rigorous selection and interview process. The program is heavily focused on the study of 'futures' in law enforcement; preparing our leaders for the next big challenges. The process includes an intense course of study, reading and many, many, many writings," the department said.
