Congrats are in order to Officer Sergio Machado. Sergio graduated from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Academy Class #419 last Friday and was named Honor Recruit for his class! This award is given to the recruit who achieves the highest numerical average based upon leadership qualities, academics, marksmanship, and physical performance throughout the training period. Sergio served in the US Army for a decade, no doubt playing a part in this well earned honor. Sergio is pictured with Sheriff Jim McDonnell and Chief Bob Guthrie. We are honored to welcome Sergio to the APD family!
