Franklin Police Honored

Franklin Police Honored

Franklin’s six newest police recruits recently graduated from the Walters State Regional Law Enforcement Academy in Greenville, Tennessee. Of the 50 police recruits from across Tennessee, four Franklin Police Recruits were recognized for outstanding performance:

◾Officer Rebecca Pike | Academic Award
◾Officer Steve Chittanavong | Defensive Tactics Award
◾Officer Branden McClellan | Top Shot Award
◾Officer Connor Jimenez | Best Athlete Award

“I am extremely proud of these men and women, and their hard work during training,” said Chief Deborah Faulkner. “We will continue to hire and train the best and brightest, because the people of Franklin deserve nothing less.”

The Department’s newest additions hail from California, Illinois, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Virginia. In addition to the nine weeks they just spent at the academy, the recruits return to Franklin Police Headquarters on Monday, where they will undergo an additional six weeks of in-house training before heading to the street for an additional 14 weeks of field training with a Master Patrol Officer.
