Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Nine women were among the 33 graduates of the 1974 Police Reserve Training School. Training for the Police Reserves was established for police departments in North Orange County through the Police Science Department of Fullerton College in September 1973. Pictured here (from left) are award-winners William J. Wallis for Outstanding Shooting, and Steven R. Lester and Suzanne S. Oliver for Outstanding Academy. On the right is Henry Bertch, Director of Training. A student of the program, Johnie Walkup, made history when she became the first woman Parking Control Officer (PCO) in Fullerton history. After passing the written examination, Walkup was selected from many applicants by a three-man oral interview board.
