Brendan Fitzgerald, a 2021 Norwich University alumnus, graduated from the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority Police Academy in December.

Concord, Massachusetts, police Chief Joseph O’Connor announced Fitzgerald’s Dec. 21 graduation from the academy, which ran for the 47th time, in an online statement.

Fitzgerald, of Concord, Massachusetts, received a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice from Norwich University and served in the Corps of Cadets. He’ll start field training with a senior officer in Concord.

With his academy graduation, Fitzgerald, who’s served as a Town of Concord traffic officer since July 2018, is certified with the Massachusetts Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission. The commission, established with criminal justice reforms in 2020, investigates and adjudicates misconduct claims; maintains training certification, employment and internal affairs records; and certifies law enforcement agencies.

Fitzgerald graduated from the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority Police Academy alongside Southern New Hampshire University grad Leah Olansky of Bennington, Vermont.

“As we approach the 150th anniversary of our department’s inception, we are happy to have these officers who will make a positive impact in our community,” O’Connor said in the statement.
