The Oak Ridge Police Department has named Brad Jenkins as its newest captain, promoting him from the rank of lieutenant earlier this month.
Jenkins was publicly recognized by Oak Ridge City Council at the regular meeting on April 8. Oak Ridge Police Chief Robin Smith presented Jenkins with his new badge, the same one worn by Smith when he held the rank of captain with ORPD, a press release said.
Jenkins joined the Oak Ridge Police Department in 1988 after three years with the University of Tennessee Chattanooga Police Department.
During his career with ORPD, he has worked in the Patrol Division, the Criminal Investigations Division, Administration Services Unit, and Narcotics Unit, the press release said. He has been a member of the SWAT team since 1991 and has served as team commander since 2001.
Jenkins earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and is a graduate of the Southeastern Leadership Academy, or SELA.
In his new position, Jenkins is responsible for leading and managing the Patrol Division. He officially started in his new role on April 7, the press release said.
