Twelve graduate from Great Oaks Police Academy

Families gathered at the Scarlet Oaks Career Campus in Sharonville last Friday evening to watch as twelve cadets prepared to begin public service as law enforcement officers. The twelve had completed training at the Great Oaks Police Academy.

The cadets, who spent 733 hours in classroom and hands-on education, acknowledged the seriousness of what retiring Academy Commander Al Jones called “this important service that you want to embrace.” Class President Tyler Trame told the audience “It’s an honor to enter this career. There’s no doubt that we will continue to work toward our goal of making the world better.”

Jones had words of advice for the graduating class. “You’ve trained in many areas, and you’re ready to begin a career with the wide range of skills and knowledge you now have. But the primary characteristic you need to show future employers and the community is that you are a good person, and that you know building partnerships with the community is the only way to have long-term solutions. Never flinch in your belief in the goodness of people.”

Robert Nash received the Top Driver Award, and Dominic Sharpe was Top Marksman for the class. The graduates also presented a donation to The Shield, an organization that supports families of fallen or disabled officers.

Certificates were presented by new Commander Michael Wright. The graduates are:
Dakota Brown of Amelia
Justin Evans, Cincinnati
Tara Ghalley, Cincinnati
Cody Herbig, Cincinnati
Chris Hochscheid, Erlanger, KY
Caleb Kaminsky, Cincinnati
Khaleena Lahouani, Cincinnati
Robert Nash, Harrison
Dominic Sharpe, Mason
Kyle Soister, Cincinnati
Tyler Trame, Cleves
Brandon Wilson, Cincinnati
