Jason Sakelarios of the Richmond Hill Police Department got his captain’s pin and badge during a ceremony at Tuesday’s City Council in City Hall.
RHPD Chief Billy Reynolds recounted Sakelarios’ accomplishments in the last few years, including Sakelarios completing his master’s degree in public-safety administration and helping the department achieve state certification.
“I couldn’t think of a better person to promote than Jason Sakelarios to captain,” Reynolds said.
The chief later said that out of 32 officers on at the RHPD, eight have bachelor’s degrees, two have master’s degrees and four have associate’s degrees — a ratio that he said was “pretty awesome.”
Also Tuesday, the council approved $225,000 from SPLOST for the purchase of seven vehicles for RHPD.
