Courtney Woods, the Motor Pool supervisor, thanked the commissioner for signing off on the training and noted that, once again, all trainees passed the course.

“This is one step closer to getting to industry standards. This will give us the opportunity to
keep the department’s vehicles instead of taking them elsewhere for repairs,” Woods said.
