The RPD members and other graduates are now fully commissioned New Mexico law enforcement officers. The officers completed the 16-week training during which each completed about 650 hours of police-officer course work on topics such as state and federal case law, crisis resolution, ethics, community policing and many other areas of study. During their time at the academy, each cadet also was tested physically, running some 200 miles and completing thousands of push-ups, sit-ups and other exercises.
