Sergeant Eddie Grant of the Rockingham Police Department was recently promoted to Lieutenant over the Patrol Division.
City officials and several members of the Rockingham Police Department attended a pinning ceremony at City Hall on Thursday in honor of Grant.
City Manager Monty Crump was among those to congratulate the new Patrol Commander.
“We’re really proud of him and the department as a whole,” Crump said of Grant, who will have spent 20 years with the police department in February. Crump added that Grant was well thought of by the other officers and brought a lot of experience to the department.
