Police cadets graduate from training program

Carroll Community College and the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commissions are offering the Police Entry Level Training Program (PELTP).

The fourth class of 19 cadets graduated Friday in the Great Hall of the college's Westminster campus.

All of the cadets were commissioned at graduation. They received a certificate from PELTP and a letter of recognition in law enforcement from the college. The letter of recognition will allow them to convert their 760 hours of training into college credits, which they may then apply toward an associate degree in Carroll's newest program in law enforcement.

Graduates and their job placement are:

Baltimore City School Police: Kevin A. Anderson, Alvin E. Baker Jr., Kellile Dia, Ronald E. Johnson Jr., Marvain Wall Jr.

Central Home Detention: Gershom C. Byrnes, Doretha B. Martin, Bernadette P. Melton, Selwyn O. Shields.

Crownsville Hospital Center: Laurence T. Campbell Sr.

Cumberland Police Department: Barry Fickes, Anthony M. Tringler.

Kent County Sheriff's Office: Stuart M. Lodge, J. Corey Tosten.

Prince George's County Fire Department: Scott K. Hoglander, William J. Lanning.

Rockville Police Department: Kelly P. Reidy, Christopher D. Sadelson.

Thurmont Police Department: Timothy W. Moran.

Before admission to the program, cadets must take a battery of hiring tests and be accepted by a state, county or city law enforcement agency as an employee. Cadets are then required to take one PELTP-directed 19-week training class per year (760 hours).

Those interested in a career in law enforcement should contact their local police department to determine job availability.

Information on PELTP: 410-386-8143.
