The Chapel Hill Police Department would like to congratulate Ethan Evans on his graduation from Columbia State with his Associate Degree in Criminal Justice.

Evans conducted his internship with the Chapel Hill Police Department for his final semester in the criminal justice program.

Evans completed 120 hours riding along-side Chapel Hill officers and then wrote a term paper on his experience.

Evans stated he enjoyed the first-hand experience and found the program to be beneficial in his learning career. Upon completion of the course Evans received an A in the class.

“Evans is a bright young man with a great future ahead of him. I wish him success in the field of law enforcement and know that he will be an asset to any department that hires him. Our officers enjoyed having him ride-along,” said Chief Andrew Kon.

Evans, who enjoys wood working, came back to the department and surprised the officers with wooden plaques in the shape of the United States Flag with the officer’s name inscribed on them.

“I just wanted to give the officers something as a thank you for letting me ride-along with them,” said Evans.
