Bradley named chief deputy

Cpl. Rob Bradley was promoted to chief deputy Feb. 1, reported Ripley County Sheriff Tom Grills.

The chief deputy, who is second in command of the office and is responsible only to the sheriff, commands both merit and non-merit personnel. This position is appointed by the sheriff and holds the rank of major. This officer acts for the sheriff in his/her absence and may assign duties to county police employees during that time.

Some of the duties include, but are not limited to

• Attending sheriff’s staff meetings and providing input on major office decisions;

• Supervising the command personnel assigned to the various divisions;

• Evaluating personnel, equipment and facility needs and making appropriate recommendations;

• Representing the sheriff and/or office at various functions outside the office;

• Responding to incidents that involve a major threat to public safety;

• Implementing and updating deputy work schedules; and

• Supervising the jail commander and the operation of the county jail.

Grills noted,”I am excited to promote Maj. Bradley to this important position and feel he is very qualified to assume the new role. This will be great for his future career within the sheriff’s office.”

Bradley’s career spans over 14 years with the sheriff’s office, beginning as a jailer in the ‘90s. He worked in that position about two-and-a-half years. He was then hired as the Osgood Town deputy marshal and held that position for three years. He was subsequently hired as a deputy in 2002 and has spent the last 12 years in that capacity.
