Nunez completes DPS training

Danny Nunez, of Pecos, graduated from the Texas Department of Public Safety's 122nd Training Academy.

"The men and women in today's graduating class are dedicated to making Texas a safer place to live," said Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, who spoke at the graduation ceremony. "They are well trained and ready to provide the high quality of law enforcement that Texans expect," he said.

Lt. Gov.-elect David Dewhurst addressed the graduating class at Riverbend Center in Austin.

DPS assistant directors Lt. Col. Frankie Waller and Lt. Col. David McEathron also participated in the ceremony along with DPS training officers.

The 27-week school is the longest continuous training academy offered by any law enforcement agency in Texas, and one of the longest in the nation. The cadets entered the Academy in June and completed 1,214 hours of instruction _ more than twice the training required by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education. The students received instruction in criminal law, traffic law, arrest procedures, accident investigation, first aid and other law enforcement subjects, as well as classes aimed at developing self-esteem and goal setting skills.

Trooper Nunez is assigned to the Driver License Service in San Angelo.
