For Immediate Release
April 4, 2018
On March 26 2018, Sheriff Henderson and his Leadership Team welcomed twenty new Cadets of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Basic Police Officer Course (BPOC), Class A-18. These men and women comprise the second full-time paid cadet academy offered by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, following in the footsteps of Class A-17, which graduated on March 9, 2018.
To be selected for the position of Cadet, each candidate underwent a competitive application process consisting of both academic and physical testing which began several months prior to the start of the academy. This included background investigations, oral board interviews with Academy staff, polygraph exams, and medical screenings. There was no guarantee of acceptance and they had to successfully pass each level of assessment to be considered.
This BPOC cadet class has a rigorous 21 week schedule of classroom instruction and physical assessments ahead of them, and is set to graduate on August 17, 2018. Upon graduation, these newly commissioned Deputies will immediately begin the Field Training Officer Program (FTO) and will be allocated across each of the three Patrol Precincts during an intensive sixteen week training process.
