Local Resident Graduates CHP Academy

Starting the process as one of 22,000 applicants, a south county young man is one of 47  graduates celebrating completion of the California Highway Patrol Academy. Cadet, Terry Baenziger, completes his 27 week training period with the Highway Patrol today, and will be moving on to Central Los Angeles Area Office for his first assignment. Baenziger says the academy experience was more than he expected and necessary to become a successful officer.
