Lt. Brad Richards – Officer of the Year
Patience Young – Dispatcher of the Year

Congratulations to Lt. Brad Richards for being selected as Canton Police Department’s Officer of the Year and Telecommunicator Patience Young for being selected as Dispatcher of the Year.

Richards, a 28 year veteran of the Canton Police Department, has been the dayshift supervisor for many years. He has served as a field training officer/supervisor as well as a special response team member/commander.

Young, who is in her third year of service, has quickly become an asset to the police department in the dispatch room. She was awarded the chief’s award last year for her performance on June 25, 2019, when Fulton County Sheriff’s Deputy Troy Chisum was killed in the line of duty.
