Brandon Sperrey of Winterport is among eight game wardens who graduated Aug. 30 from the Maine Criminal Justice Academy in Vassalboro.

Seven of the game wardens work for the Maine Warden Service and one is a Penobscot tribal game warden. All recently completed an extensive 13-week advanced academy focused specifically on game warden work.

Sperrey is assigned to Saco.

The Advanced Warden Academy followed the 18-week Basic Law Enforcement Training Program required of all full-time Maine police officers. The past 13 weeks prepared the new game wardens with classroom, field and scenario-based training components.

Critical aspects of game warden work, including search and rescue, recreational vehicle crash investigation, snowmobiling, water survival, white water navigation, physical fitness, mechanics of arrest, public relations, and bureau policies and procedures were among the topics covered.
