From the TESST College of Technology:
Sgt. Peter Georgiades of the Harford County Sheriff’s Department was one of six criminal justice professionals recognized at a ceremony held by TESST College of Technology in Towson.
The school dedicated its firearms training simulator lab in honor of their commitment to keeping our community safe and routinely going above and beyond the call of duty. The accomplishments of the following individuals will serve as an inspiration for the next generation of criminal justice professionals training at the college:
– Det. Kevin Brown, Baltimore City Police Department
– Sgt. Peter Georgiades, Harford County Sheriff’s Department
– Valda Rotolo, Victim/ Witness Coordinator, Office of the State’s Attorney for Cecil County
– Sgt. David Sexton, Homicide Unit, Maryland State Police
– Cpl. Angel Valle, Cecil County Sheriff’s Office
– Deputy Michael Zack, Patrol Division, Cecil County Sheriff’s Office
Guest speakers at the ceremony included Scott D. Shellenberger, Baltimore County State’s Attorney, and Tammy Brown, Executive Director, Governor’s Office of Crime Control and & Prevention.
Following the dedication, the campus demonstrated the FATS machine’s capabilities and gave attendees a chance to try out the simulator. The hands-on training provided via the FATS helps prepare criminal justice students to react to situations a law enforcement officer could encounter on the job.
