WEST SACRAMENTO – Jared Wilde of Lemoore has successfully completed the six-month cadet-training course at the California Highway Patrol Academy, officials said.
Wilde graduated from Kings Christian High School in Lemoore in 2009 before going on to earn a bachelor’s degree in business management from Fresno Pacific University.
Prior to attending the CHP Academy, he was employed as a welder for American Stainless Professionals in Lemoore.
Cadet training for Wilde started with nobility in policing, leadership, professionalism and ethics, and cultural diversity, and included mental illness response and crisis intervention techniques.
Officials said the over six-month course covered vehicle patrol, accident investigation, first aid, and capture-and-arrest of suspected violators, including those who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Wilde also received training in traffic control, report writing, recovery of stolen vehicles, assisting the motoring public, issuing citations, emergency scene management, and knowledge of various codes including the vehicle code, penal code and health and safety code, officials said.
CHP said Wilde was assigned to duty at the CHP’s East Los Angeles area office.
