BECOMING THE BADGE: Pursuit and Perseverance

BECOMING THE BADGE: Pursuit and Perseverance.

It's a tough week for the El Paso police recruits after a big test brings a big setback.

The 122nd Class has overcome many obstacles individually and as a class.

But this week might be their biggest hurdle yet, after a third of the class fails a comprehensive exam.

“Are we willing to terminate if they are not conforming to the program? Yes, definitely,” said Sgt. Jeremy Ontiveros.

As recruits are chasing the badge, they’re also getting a sense of what it will be like to chase a suspect.
