April 3 – April 4, 2014

Today’s Good News
The Richmond Police Department is proud to invite the community to the promotions ceremony of Detective Patrick Brady, Officer Jeremy Nierman and Sergeant Stanley Sutton today at 2 p.m. today in Room 103 of the Richmond Police Training Academy 1202 W. Graham Road. “These officers have already shown immense ability and a self-generated drive towards leadership,” Chief Ray J. Tarasovic said. “They have led their fellow officers with a determined work ethic, problem-solving skills and teamwork. I look forward to these professionals growing even further as sergeants.”

Sgt. Brady has been with the Department for more than 12 years, all of which he has spent at Second Precinct from the patrol to detective level. What Sgt. Brady loves most about police work is the exciting variety of the job and he can’t wait to learn even more as steps into his new role as sergeant.

Sgt. Nierman has been with Richmond Police for more than seven years, all of which has also been spent at Second Precinct as well. Sgt. Nierman said he became a police officer because he wanted to make a positive difference in the community and he plans to continue that mission as a sergeant.

Sgt. Sutton has been with the Department for eight years, and recently returned from serving his country on military leave overseas. He was most recently assigned to Second Precinct, where his defining characteristic, his lieutenant says, is his professionalism. When Sutton is involved with a project, assignment or operation – the result is always, 'Mission Accomplished.' The Marine Corps had the benefit of Sutton's skills and passionate service at the time of his initial promotion in December, but the Department is now happy to have him back and celebrate his accomplishment.
