Town adds third police officer to force
Wednesday, March 28, 2012

ROWESVILLE — The town of Rowesville added its third police officer recently, welcoming Sgt. Ronald Johnson to the Rowesville Police Department.

Mayor Glenn Johnson administered the oath of office to the new officer.

Johnson, 42, has been a law enforcement officer since 2005, most recently serving for a little more than a year as a member of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department Gang Unit.

Simpson said he is proud to have Johnson join the town’s police force, saying he hopes adding a third officer will help deter burglaries in Rowesville.

Police Chief Michael Thomas said, “We are at full capacity with three officers in town. Our goal is to better serve the citizens of the town by building a better one-on-one relationship with each resident.”

Councilwoman Denise Metts said she is pleased with the development of the Rowesville Police Department.

”I am very proud that Rowesville has gone from absolutely no police department to a fully functional department in the last three years thanks to Chief Michael Thomas, the mayor and town council,” Metts said. “Sgt. Johnson will be a greater asset to the department because he has been certified and specially trained via the Richland County Sheriff’s Department anti-gang unit.”

Johnson noted, “I am proud to join the department, and I welcome any residents to drop by town hall to meet me and discuss any concerns they may have.”
