Dos Palos High School graduate Rolando Flores, Jr. has successfully completed cadet training at the California Highway Patrol Academy. He has been assigned to duty at the CHP’s San Jose Area office.

Flores graduated from Dos Palos High School in 2016. He continued his education by obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from California State University, Stanislaus. Prior to attending the CHP Academy, Flores worked as a juvenile institution officer for Merced County Probation.

Flores was part of 128 new officers who graduated from the CHP Academy in West Sacramento after completing 27 weeks of training. Cadets crossed the stage to receive their badge and assignment at one of the CHP’s 103 area offices throughout the state.

“Completing Academy training is a tremendous achievement,” said CHP Commissioner Amanda Ray. “These women and men are not just starting a new job, they are embarking on a lifelong career that requires extreme dedication and a passion for service.”

The CHP’s newest officers join the ranks of the more than 6,700 uniformed personnel serving in communities throughout the state.
