HPD officers named co-valedictorians of State Police Academy’s 156th Basic Class
“We are proud of their accomplishment, but not surprised,” Mayor Steve Williams said. “They are meeting the standard that we have come to expect from our men and women at the Huntington Police Department.”Huntington Police Officer Brandon Heighton, 24, of Ironton, Ohio, also graduated from the 156thBasic Class with excellent scores. All three officers are undergoing department-specific training this week and will begin field-officer training this weekend. They will be evaluated by senior officers under a probationary period that will last at least eight weeks before they start patrol work on their own.
“We’re very proud of each officer’s academic achievements while in the Academy,” Huntington Police Chief Skip Holbrook said. “I hope that is an indication of what we can expect from all three as they begin their careers with the Huntington Police Department.”
