Staff Pick Of The Week

The final episode of the 122nd cadet series shows graduation and the cadets receiving their badges.  The best part of following Austin Police cadets through 8 months of training was seeing all their hard work pay off at graduation.  I enjoyed being able to do follow up interviews with three of the cadets a year after graduation.  It was interesting to see how much more they had learned on patrol.  Producer – Jonathan Uhl
