VASSALBORO — Six officers in four York County departments  are among Maine’s 52 newest police officers who  graduated from the Maine Criminal Justice Academy on Friday. 

The officers spent eighteen weeks in study and training and most will begin patrolling immediately, in time for Christmas and New Year’s Eve enforcement efforts, said Maine Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland.

“You’ll see the best and the worst of people in your career, and each one of you will have a hand in making your communities safer than yesterday,” said guest speaker Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce. 

The new officers studied many topics, including crime scene processing, emergency vehicle operation, first aid, traffic and criminal law, domestic violence and sexual assault.

Local officers among the graduates include  Codie Dube, Biddeford Police; Paul P. Gauvin and Rodney D. Rossignol, Saco Police; Elizabeth K. McPhillips and Daniel O. Morrison, Old Orchard Beach Police and  Erik T. Rae, Sanford Police.
