Sgt. Jose Centeno is shown here with a West Virginia State Police cruiser at the Princeton Detachment barracks. Centeno came to the United States in 1989, and was immediately impressed by the professionalism of the West Virginia State Police. He entered the State Police Academy in 1992, graduated in 1993 and worked in the state’s eastern panhandle for his first assignment.
