CPD OFFICER RECEIVES SERGEANT STRIPES
Police Chief Rick Scarbrough promoted Anthony Godwin to Patrol Sergeant on April 27th. Some of his fellow officers and family were present when Sergeant Godwin received his “stripes”.

While Sergeant Godwin has only been with the Clinton Police Department for two years, he was a police officer in Memphis for several years, before. Sergeant Godwin is a graduate of the University of Tennessee, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Business and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. “Anthony has a great background of patrol and drug interdiction experience. He is respected by his peers within the department for his experience, work ethic and positive attitude.” Said Chief Scarbrough.

Several officers expressed an interest in the position and participated in the selection process.  Candidates were required to take a written test, be involved in a scenario based assessment, graded by a panel made up of command level officers from four different agencies, write an essay, and participate in an oral interview conducted by Chief Scarbrough. The results were very competitive. Seven officers tested and the final scores were within 15 points.

“I’m excited about the future of the department! We have a lot of talent within the patrol division and throughout the Clinton Police Department”. Added Chief Scarbrough
