From the Charles County Sheriff’s Facebook Page:
Congratulations to CCSO Officers Brandon Morrison and Cody Garner who graduated from the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Regional Basic SWAT School, Session 34 this afternoon. They will now be a part of our agency’s Emergency Services Team, which currently has 21 members.
The three week school consisted of rigorous classroom and practical training relating to “high risk” search and seizure/arrest warrants, hostage/barricade resolution, tactical theory, vehicle assaults, chemical agent familiarization, firearms training and rappelling. The course was both physically and mentally demanding to the core. To graduate from this training, an officer must be in top physical condition and pass a series of tests.
The protection of life is our highest priority. Members of EST are often called upon to handle the most dangerous and challenging situations when time allows.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
