From the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office:
Sheriff Mike Evans would like to congratulate Captain David Payne on his graduation from the 273rd session of the FBI National Academy on September 13, 2018. Captain Payne was selected by the FBI from a large pool of applicants from around the world to attend the exclusive 10 week executive program. Only the top 1% of law enforcement executives are selected to attend this program. ‘
He spent 10 weeks in Quantico Virginia at the FBI Academy where the training focused on graduate level academics, physical fitness, and learning from the experiences of the other law enforcement professionals enrolled in the program. The students in this session hailed from 25 countries and 48 states, making for a diverse group.
Captain Payne was able to maintain a perfect 4.0 GPA in the graduate level classes which are accredited by the University of Virginia.
Sheriff Mike Evans stated, “Captain Payne is a true asset to the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and the citizens of Calvert County.”
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
