[July 2019] Request for Buncombe Sheriff’s Office Promotional Policy

Hello!

We would like to request a copy of the current, if any, promotional policy of the Buncombe County Sheriff's Office. Additionally, we would be interested to know if there are any requirements to be promoted to a supervisory position. Would you please also provide a list of persons promoted since Sheriff Miller took office?

In the past, it is our understanding that the promotional policy consisted of a candidate having to meet specific Minimum Requirements (years of service, training hours, advanced certifications, etc), Oral Board Interview, Written Examination, and a Practical Examination/Test.

Are any of these procedures currently in place? If not, how are persons selected for promotional opportunities (outside of the the Sheriff's Command Staff)?

Thank you.

    Hello Sunshine Requests,

     

    Sheriff Miller has promoted the following individuals since taking office on 12/3/2019:

     

    Major Randy Sorrells – Detention

    Captain Kevin Calhoun – Training

    Captain Chad Edwards – Patrol

    Captain Jillian Banks – Court Security and Detention

    Captain Tony Gould – Detention

    Exec. Lt. Preston Honeycutt – Patrol

    Lt. Bert Alexander – Detention

    Lt. Robert Mangum – Court Security

    Lt. Courtney Mumm – Civil Process

    Lt. Elliott Summey – Criminal Investigations

    Lt. Richie Moffat – Patrol

    Lt. Allan Endaya – Patrol

    Lt. Kelly Ball – SRO

    Sgt. Casey Roberts – Criminal Investigations

    Sgt. Kelli Tinsley – Training

    Sgt. Ryan Jordan – Criminal Investigations

    Sgt. Jerry Burrell – Criminal Investigations

    Sgt. Shawn Wildes – Training

    Sgt. Dustan Auldredge – Patrol

    Sgt. Chad Walker – Patrol

    Sgt. Chantel Shannon – Detention

    Sgt. Corey Ray – SRO

     

    Sheriff Miller is proud to have more women and people of color in leadership positions at the Sheriff’s Office than ever before.

     

    You can find the full organizational chart for the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office on our website under the FAQ section and I have also attached the doc here.

     

    We have also posted photos of the individuals who have been promoted to our Facebook page as well.

    There is not a promotional policy document. If we have an open position then that will be announced internally and/or advertised publicly on the Buncombe County website. Sheriff Miller did choose his command staff upon entering office and reorganized/filled some positions at his discretion. He also brought in Chief Deputy Don Eberhardt to fill that role, he was in the position of Captain at the APD previously; and Major Daryl Fisher to oversee Patrol, he was previously retired from APD at the time.

     

    Yes, there are minimum requirements to be promoted to a supervisory position. Continuing education credits, training credits and years of experience are calculated on each candidate prior to the interview process for an open position.
