Deputies David Lauer, Cory Martindale and Savannah Tackley began the Law Enforcement Academy on March 14 and underwent 24 weeks of rigorous academic, physical, practical and field training. Upon graduation all three deputies will complete 12 additional weeks of departmental field training, under the supervision of field training officers. They will then be assigned to a shift within the Patrol Division.

Bourke is proud of the hard work, dedication, and resilience displayed by Deputies Lauer, Martindale, and Tackley.

The Law Enforcement Academy is mentally, academically and physically demanding. All three deputies represented the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office well.

Please congratulate all three deputies, and wish them a long, safe and successful career!
