Gaithersburg Police Announces the Graduation of New Officers
The Gaithersburg Police Department is proud to announce the graduation of three new officers, Brandon Day, Gregory Johannesen and Robert Maskey, from Session 22 of the Police Entry Level Training Program at the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commission.
The 26-week training session consisted of classroom and practical instruction. The program focused on a variety of needs, including the training of police recruits, emergency vehicle operations, correctional entrance level, inmate transportation, firearms, administration, supervision, instruction, crime prevention, D.A.R.E., executive development, emergency care, and other specialized areas.
“These officers will have a direct impact on the safety of our citizens and the quality of life they enjoy. Together, we will continue to make Gaithersburg safer,” said Chief Mark Sroka.
After graduation the officers will be assigned to Field Training Officers for the next fourteen weeks.
On July 18, lateral officer Noah Grubic from the Metro Transit Police Department will begin his four weeks of field training. Upon satisfactory completion of field training, the four officers will begin patrolling alone.
