New Fire Investigators Graduate Police Academy

MEDIA CONTACT: Mark E. Brady, Chief Spokesperson, 240-508-7930

The Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services Department recently had two members that have successfully completed and graduated from the County Police Academy.  The two Fire Fighter/Medics are in the process of becoming the Departments newest additions to the position of Fire Investigator.

Fire Fighter/Medics Justin Shea and Jennifer Lawhorne were two of the forty-seven recruits from the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Basic Training Session #123.  Graduation ceremonies were held on Tuesday evening, July 23, in Upper Marlboro.  
The pair of Fire Fighter/Medics graduated as Law Enforcement officers that are certified by the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commission to enforce the fire and explosive laws of the State of Maryland and Prince George's County Maryland. They learned every skill that a County Police Officer learns in the academy.  In order to become Fire Investigators the pair must also obtain certification to enable them to determine the cause and origin of fires and explosions.

Shea and Lawhorne will join an experienced and talented team of personnel assigned to the Fire Investigations Division within the Office of the Fire Marshal.   This office reports to Deputy Fire Chief Scott K. Hoglander, Commander of the Support Services Command of the Fire/EMS Department. 

In addition to Fire Chief Bashoor and Deputy Fire Chief Hoglander many personnel  from Fire Investigations attended the graduation ceremony.
