(Los Angeles, California – May 16, 2014) Today’s graduation ceremony held at the Los Angeles Police Academy at Elysian Park marked the start of a career with the Los Angeles Airport Police Division for Officers Devin Feldman and Officer Ngan Lee.
Among the 29 graduates of Class 12-13, Officer Feldman was selected as Class President by his classmates and delivered the class speech. He also received the Human Relations Award for his excellent performance during domestic violence scenarios.
Los Angeles Airport Police Chief Patrick M. Gannon performed the swearing-in of the new officers saying, “I commend both officers on their accomplishments and welcome them to the ranks of the Airport Police Division.”
Also in attendance at the ceremony were Captain Fernando Castro, Lieutenant Robert Rios, Sergeant’s Joe Espitia and Daniel Romo, Officer Cipriano Montes and a host of other Airport Police personnel.
Both Officers Feldman and Lee are expected to complete a six-month Field Training Program specific to airport law enforcement under the guidance of a field training officer before being assigned to the Patrol Services Section.
