Pleasanton police welcome 2 new officers

Now undergoing 16-week field training process

Joshua Cerri and Nicole Evans were sworn in last week as new officers on the Pleasanton police force.

Both are recent graduates of the Alameda County Sheriff's Office Police Academy.

Cerri was born and raised in Pleasanton, and in 2008 participated in the city police department's Teen Academy. He said that inspired him to pursue a career in law enforcement.

After graduating from Amador Valley High School, Cerri enrolled at Arizona State University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in Public Service and Public Policy with an emphasis in Criminology.

Evans was born and raised in Livermore, graduated from Granada High School and went on to earn an associate degree at Las Positas College with an emphasis in Social Science. Her father is a deputy with the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.

The two new officers will now undergo a 16-week field training process before being assigned to patrol duties in Pleasanton.

I used to live in Pleasanton, and now live in Dublin. I am glad that there are people born here in the valley and go into law enforcement.
