[07/11/17]   Had the chance to visit with our international students today as we revise some curriculum for incoming Mexican supervisors. I have to say that the technology that makes simultaneous translation possible is an asset to both the students and the instructors.

[07/11/17]   The staff of MPCTC welcome the newest recruits of the Correctional Entrance Level Training Program, CELTP 18-01, who begin their journey tomorrow, July 12, 2017. For those who have never experienced the arrival of a new academy class, the halls will be loud tomorrow! Best of luck to the recruits and staff as you take this step in your professional journey.

[07/07/17]   There were several academies that graduated over the past two days. We want to wish all of the new probation agents, correctional officers and State troopers a safe journey as they embark on their new careers! Congratulations to all the graduates & staff!

[06/19/17]   The Police & Correctional Training Commissions are pleased to welcome Executive Director, Karen Kruger.

[01/07/16]   Congratulations to Executive Director Mike Zeigler who has been appointed by Secretary Moyer to serve as Assistant Secretary of Operations for the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. MPCTC is appreciative of Mr. Zeigler's tenure with the agency, and wishes him the best in his new position.

[05/15/15]   Join us today at 10:00 a.m. at the Public Safety Education Training Center in Sykesville, MD for our annual Fallen Heroes Memorial Service. May the memories of all of those who gave their lives in the service of public safety be eternal, and may God rest their souls in peace.

[04/24/15]   We will be welcoming Mr. J. Michael Zeigler as the next Executive Director of the Maryland Police & Correctional Training Commissions (Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services) effective next Wednesday, April 29th. Our congratulations to Mr. Zeigler on his appointment.

[04/17/15]   Saying goodbye today to our Executive Director, Mr. Charles Rapp, who has led the Commissions for the past five years. We are grateful for his service, and wish him the best in his next endeavors. Godspeed!

The following was his note sent to the staff yesterday:

Today I want to share with you that I will be leaving my position as Executive Director of the Commissions effective Monday April 20. Secretary Moyer is putting together his own management team and I respect that decision.

It has been my honor and privilege to work with each of you over the past five years. During this time the Commissions has improved the quality and variety of training, revised programs to be more effective, expanded scenario based learning, adopted best practices in adult education, and addressed needs that were brought to our attention. The Commissions has modernized many processes and included more electronic submissions to allow for better communications between our staff and agencies.
On our regulatory mission, we have enforced and improved standards to increase the professionalism of Corrections and Police officers in Maryland. The work we have done with ensuring compliance with standards has made Maryland a leader in professional standards and provided better service to Maryland residents.

Until my replacement is named, Deputy Director Al Liebno will be the Acting Executive Director.

I want to thank each of you for the dedication, commitment, and pride you have displayed in our agency. All of the improvements and value we have added is a result of the hard work each of you has done to provide exceptional service and training to our partner agencies. As I leave the Commissions I am confident that the agency is better than when I arrived. It is a valuable partner to many agencies public and private because of your work. I encourage you to continue improving our service and building stronger relationships with our partner agencies to benefit all of the citizens of Maryland. As I leave I also recognize that much of the improvement you have made was done with limited resources. This reinforces that you are a talented, creative, and extremely dedicated group of professionals who overcome obstacles and rise to meet and solve challenges head on. I wish each of you great success in your future endeavors, and if I can assist you feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,
Chuck Rapp
