The Baltimore County Police Department graduated the 148th Lateral Recruit Class on Friday, March 23, at 1 p.m. at CCBC-Dundalk, Baltimore County Police Training Academy, 7200 Sollers Point Road, 21222.

Chief Terrence Sheridan addressed the class and presented the diplomas. The Honorable Julie Ensor, Clerk of the Court for Baltimore County, administered the oath of office to the officers.

The 148th class is made up primarily of graduates with prior law enforcement experience; many bring years of experience with other law enforcement agencies to Baltimore County.

“We welcome 13 experienced law enforcement officers into the Baltimore County Police Department," said Chief Sheridan. "The level of experience they bring with them enables us to get an additional 13 officers into direct police service in a much shorter time span than those coming in as recruits. We thank them for choosing this noble profession of making our country, our communities, our citizens safer.”

All of these new members successfully completed the rigorous training program at the County’s training academy and now face field training with veteran police officers.
