Sheriff Mike Roberson honors May’s exemplary employees

Pittsboro, NC – Every month, Sheriff Mike Roberson acknowledges a Sworn and a Detention/Non-sworn employee of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office as “exemplary employees of the month.” The commendation is bestowed upon individuals who demonstrate exceptional performance, extraordinary dedication and service, team spirit, positive attitude, problem-solving skills and/or outstanding leadership.

In recognition of their achievement, Sheriff Roberson presents each honoree with a Gold Exemplary badge to be worn throughout the entire month.

Tyler Bridges & Wesley Summers were May’s exemplary employees of the month.

Wesley Summers has been chosen as the Detention/Non-sworn exemplary employee for May.

Wesley is consistently positive and encouraging in all his interactions at the Chatham County Detention Center. He readily makes himself available to assist wherever he is needed, always without complaint, and takes pride in his ability to mentor and train other officers. 

Even in high-stress situations, Wesley remains composed, demonstrates excellent leadership skills, and sets an excellent example for his colleagues to emulate.

Investigator Tyler Bridges has been recognized as the agency’s Sworn Exemplary Employee for May. 

Throughout the month, Tyler demonstrated exceptional proficiency in collaborating with various agencies and successfully tracking down stolen property. He exhibited his expertise by drafting two search warrants for properties located in neighboring counties, and through effective communication with Investigators from the Harnett and Lee County Sheriff’s Offices, Tyler coordinated the execution of those search warrants. Tyler’s ability to develop leads and valuable information in the case was a direct result of his painstaking review of numerous hours’ worth of jail phone calls.

During those operations, Tyler was able to recover more than $11,000.00 worth of stolen items. The victim involved in the case expressed great appreciation and gratitude for Tyler’s diligent efforts in pursuing the investigation. 

Tyler’s contributions make him a valuable member of the Investigations team. His commitment and thoroughness in handling each case he undertakes, regardless of the outcome, helps foster stronger connections within the community. Tyler’s dedication is evident in each case he works on, and victims greatly appreciate the tremendous effort he invests in each investigation.
