CENTREVILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office welcomes its new deputies.
After six months of training at the Eastern Shore Criminal Justice Academy, five deputy sheriff recruits graduated at a commencement ceremony in Salisbury. Deputies Matthew Johnston, Austin Frazier, Tyler Argubright, Nicholas Means and Benjamin Williams received their diplomas and new badges during the ceremony.
Johnston was also awarded a firearm and athletic award at the commencement.
While attending the graduation, Sherif f Gary Hofmann said, “I’m proud of the commitment and devotion each deputy recruit has displayed to graduate from the Eastern Shore Criminal Justice Academy. Each recruit had to endure six months of strenuous physical activity and comprehensive training in order to make it to graduation day.
“In addition, the recruits spent many additional hours at night studying and preparing for tests and scenario-based trainings. The determination they have shown is admirable. I’m proud to welcome them to our agency.”
