The Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training is pleased to announce the graduation of its 406th Basic Police Class.

The Basic Police Class is 16 weeks in length and includes dozens of training areas including survival skills, firearms, emergency vehicle operations, ethics, cultural diversity, problem solving, community policing, elder abuse, drug recognition and dozens of other subjects.

Basic Police Class 406 will graduate during a private ceremony at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, April 29.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing, the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training regrets that this ceremony will be closed to the public. However, we would like to publicly congratulate Basic Police #BP406 on their successful completion of basic training

Included in the graduating class was Police Officer Jacob Harmon, who will join the Brookings Police Department.
