Holmes Community College patrol officer Sheyanne Dean of West recently graduated from the Mississippi Delta Community Law Enforcement Training Academy in Moorhead.

Dean, a native of West, received certifications in firearms training, emergency vehicle, OC pepper spray and defensive tactics during the 12-week program.

She said the driving week was her favorite part of the program. "The O.C. Course was the worst part of the program for me," Dean said. "Defensive Tactics was very tiring, but it taught me how to defend myself if I am ever in a hands-on situation."

She has an associate of arts degree in pre-law and an associate of applied science degree in criminal justice from Holmes CC. She started as a patrol officer in July 2018 at Holmes.
