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.”
