Ryan started the training course in May, with a loan of $6,800 from the Mendocino Public Safety Foundation for tuition and expenses. He looks forward to work as a sheriff’s deputy here. Under the scholarship program guidelines, the loan is to be forgiven after three years of service.
Ryan Kelly is the fifth scholarship loan recipient under the Foundation’s program. Our near-term goal is to fund at least six more scholarships for local residents to attend policy academy and go to work as officers in Mendocino County. The program will fund up to $11,000 each to qualified candidates. For more information, see our brochure in the sidebar of this webpage.
