Congratulations to the new officers that will be serving Aroostook County:

The officers from the state agencies will have additional training before they begin patrolling, sometime next year.


The graduation speaker was Superior Court Justice William Stokes, a former deputy attorney general. Stokes told the new officers, “You bring the constitution to life every day  and you are the first step in implementing the Bill of Rights. Congratulations to committing yourselves to serve your communities.”
