The unit has conducted more than 8,500 facial recognition investigations, with over 3,000 possible matches and approximately 2,000 arrests. Roger’s enhancement techniques are now recognized worldwide and have changed law enforcement’s approach to the utilization of facial recognition technology.

Maryland State Police Graduate 52 Troopers

September 23, 2011  | 

The Maryland State Police presented badges and diplomas to 52 new troopers at the Century High School in Sykesville today, following a 26-week police academy.

Col. Marcus Brown made it clear to members of the state police's 137th academy class how they should approach their duties.

"Your job is to impact the areas where crime is highest, where traffic issues are worst, and where help is needed most," Col. Brown said. "At the end of your shift, I want you to ask yourself what you did that day impact crime, increase traffic safety, protect the homeland, and support local law enforcement. If you can answer that question in a positive way, then you have done your jon and have carried on the proud tradition of the Maryland State Police."

The class of troopers is the second this year. In March, 40 troopers joined the state police. The next recruit class is scheduled to begin training in January.

After a few days of leave, the troopers will report to one of 22 barracks to begin eight weeks of field training with a veteran trooper. Upon successful completion, they will begin patrolling alone.

While in the Navy and stationed at NSA, I was always impressed with the State Troopers. They wore their uniforms with pride...also had some fairly nice vehicles. Three cheers to the Maryland State Police. <><
