Three SCMPD officers promoted to captain

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department officially promoted three of its finest officers Thursday.

Ashley Brown, Robert Gavin and David Gay were recognized Thursday morning in a Captain's Promotion Ceremony. Fellow officers, judges, family and friends attended the pinning ceremony at the SCMPD Professional Development Center.

All three officers joined the department more than 20 years ago. Captain Robert Gavin explains why he decided to be an officer.

"It's all about we are here to serve. People don't join the profession for the money, you aren't going to become a millionaire, and it's nothing about that. It's about being able to give back, the opportunity to serve, and we just got to remember that," said Capt. Gavin.
