Chief Maggard Welcomes Three New Officers
Braden Marks, Trent Chandler and Rebecca Steen were sworn in by Chief Maggard in the Conference and Training Center. Friends, family and Department members were joined by several of their academy classmates and the entire academy training staff for the ceremony. The three officers graduated from the 199th Orange County Sheriff’s Basic Academy the previous evening during a ceremony held at the academy. Lieutenant Allan, Sergeant Egan and Officer Casas were present to congratulate them at that event.
The new officers will attend an orientation process next week prior to entering the Field Training Program. Several friends and family members attended a special orientation after the ceremony presented by Lieutenant Tom Allan and Program Specialist Jade Mazzio. The orientation is designed to both welcome and to provide resources to the family and friends of our newest officers as well as to explain what challenges are ahead for their officer in the Field Training Program and beyond.
