Anthony Lopes and Maria Hernandez have long held dreams of a law enforcement career, but neither knew how to achieve it.
Until a new course at Solano Community College, in partnership with the Solano County Sheriff’s Office, popped up, offering academics and real-life training.
“I saw this as an opportunity to go on in the criminal justice system,” said Hernandez, 25.
Lopes, 20, agreed.
“When I heard about it I had to do it,” he said. “It sounded exciting.”
