In April of 2013, our two new officers will have completed their field training and will be patrolling the streets of Hilliard. Officers Dustin Vance and Officer Austin Vogelsang were among the graduates of the 128th Basic Peace Officer Training Class at the Ohio State Highway Patrol Academy. They graduated on December 21, 2012 from the 18-week program designed to prepare students for a law-enforcement career. Vance was recognized at the academy as the class "Top Shot," and was honored for achieving the highest score in firearms among all the members of the class.
During the past several months Officers Vance and Vogelsang were assigned to a field training officer who worked with them one-on-one to ensure they are ready to take on their patrol duties. We are happy to welcome both Dustin and Austin in new challenges and adventures here at the Hilliard Division of Police.
