Herman promoted to Police Lieutenant

LENOIR, NC (December 21, 2017)…Lenoir Police Chief Scott Brown has promoted Jody Herman to the rank of Police Lieutenant, effective Jan. 1, 2018.

“I am honored to announce that Jody Herman has accepted promotion to the rank of Police Lieutenant,” Brown said. “Lieutenant Herman sits in first place in the current and active Lieutenant process, which was completed last spring. He did an outstanding job, just as he has always done, and we have no doubt that he will make an excellent Platoon Commander for his people, this department, and our community.”

The position became available after Lieutenant Daryl Cornett retired earlier this year.

Lieutenant Herman is an 18-year law enforcement veteran and has served as a Patrol Officer, Patrol Sergeant, General Investigator, Narcotics Investigator, and Special Response Team member. He holds the Advanced Law Enforcement Certificate, which is the highest police recognition awarded by the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission. Lieutenant Herman is well-prepared for this new role.

Lieutenant Herman will be assigned to the Patrol Division. Captain Wilson will announce details of his assignment in the very near future. Until then, please join me in congratulating Lieutenant Jody Herman on this significant accomplishment.
