Wake Forest Police Sgt. Richard Brown is the recipient of the 2017 Brantley Pearce Memorial Award. Sgt. Brown accepted the award on Sunday, Oct. 22, during the Emergency Chaplains’ “Hometown Heroes” banquet at Research Triangle Park’s Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center. The Emergency Chaplains present the award annually to one police officer, firefighter, EMS, chaplain, and dispatcher in North Carolina who has “gone above and beyond the call of duty.” Brantley Pearce, who the award is named after, died in an automobile accident in 2012. Pearce’s family sponsors the annual Brantley Pearce Memorial Awards in recognition of the kind of help needed during a time of great loss. Sgt. Brown has served as a Wake Forest Police Department Chaplain since 1996. He joined the department as a sworn officer in 1999. In addition to providing chaplaincy for the police department and the Wake Forest community, Sgt. Brown has served in several roles as a uniformed officer. He is currently assigned to the Support Services Division. To learn more about Emergency Chaplains, visit www.echap.org/.
