“All Mount Olive police officers, once they graduate the police academy, must successfully
complete the Field Training Program," explained Mount Olive Police Chief Stephen Beecher.

To make it through the program, rookie officers must meet 597 training objectives that "cover a multitude of
police activities, laws, policies and procedures,” said the chief. He said LaManna’s Field Training Officer was Mount Olive Police Patrol Cpl. Hunter Guiles.

his recommendation for hire as a police officer.
