A very special Cop Stop for School Resource Officer (SRO) Mike Maggipinto

Last Friday, the Germantown Police Department chased an armed suspect throughout several neighborhoods. Two of our GMSD school resource officers double as GPD SWAT members.

Farmington Elementary’s Officer Mike Maggipinto and District Supervisor Officer Brandon Schiel began the chase with the SWAT team early in the morning. The two were a valuable part of the team that brought the suspect to justice.

“Even more amazing,” says Assistant Principal Ashley Brasfield, “is that minutes after the man was finally caught by our very own Officer Mike, he was back at school serving as our friendly SRO”.

There was then a tearful standing ovation as the entire faculty of Farmington applauded the officer while giving him three giant gift baskets full of things that he is known to enjoy.

The staff will be hosting a very special Cop Stop for Officer Mike Maggipinto as well as the rest of the Germantown Police on Thursday, November 5th from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m at the school. The concept of Cop Stop, which began in Germantown, has spread all over the greater Memphis area. To read more about it, click here.
