VIDEO: New DC Officer Proposes to Girlfriend at Academy Graduation

Graduation day took a surprise turn for one new Washington, DC, police officer and his girlfriend, who are now celebrating something else amazing: their engagement.

As new officer Josh Jarvie celebrated his completing his training at the Metropolitan Police Department Academy graduation ceremony on October 9, he asked his girlfriend, Shana Maschack, to be the one to pin on his badge. But Shana didn’t know that Josh had a surprise in store for her.

It’s clear from video of the graduation, which they shared with FOX 5, that Shana had no idea what was about to happen. As soon as she pinned the badge on Josh’s uniform, he took both her hands—and then dropped down on one knee, pulled out a ring (which he designed himself) and asked her to marry him.
