Today at Police Headquarters, Chief Deborah Faulkner swore in two police trainees as the Department’s newest Police Officers. Jesus Coreno, a former Alamo, Texas Police Officer, and Ryan Grande, a former Atlanta Police Officer, were commissioned at a ceremony attended by fellow officers and Assistant City Administrator Vernon Gerth.
“The badges we give you today are to be worn with dignity and respect,” said Chief Faulkner. “We wish you success in your continued training, and look forward to your service to this Department and our community.”
Officers Coreno and Grande move to the field evaluation portion of their training tomorrow, where Master Patrol Officers will closely monitor and evaluate their work on the street for the next 15 weeks.
Six remaining police trainees will be sworn in to begin their field training after the completion of their required certification at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy.
Franklin Police Officers are required to complete 33 weeks of training before they are released for solo patrol.
