Both trained at the Devils Lake Academy, Carver and Ochoa come from very different back- grounds. "I'm from Tennessee, close to the Nashville area, near Ken- tucky," said Carver. "I was living in Tioga before I trained at the Academy. I had some contacts through Tioga's police depart- ment." Ochoa, on the other hand, grew up in Hillsboro.

"I've been here since De- cember, so that's about two months" Carver said. "Working in Walsh County, riding along with road deputies, and patrolling in Park River."
