Menlo Park welcomes its newest police officers Robert Campos, Andrew Brunicardi, Bryce Dale, Shaun Nissen and Robert Nolasco. The five graduated on Friday, May 11, from the College of San Mateo Police Academy, and will start in their positions on Monday, May 14. 

The graduates started as police recruits in November 2017 and successfully completed six months of intensive police training, which consisted of written and physical abilities tests. The California Commission on Peace Officers Standards (POST) requires police officers receive initial foundation training and information on specific topics. This curriculum consists of 42 individual topics called learning domains. They will begin their field-training program next week paired with field-training officers for the next several months. 

Throughout their time in the police academy, the graduates were assigned mentors to help them successfully complete the academy. Of special note, Interim Police Chief Dave Bertini delivered the keynote message to the graduating class. 

The City of Menlo Park celebrates these officer’s achievements and wishes them a successful and rewarding career in law enforcement.
