Steffman named Braselton PD captain
BRASELTON - Michael Steffman is the Braselton Police Department’s new captain according to Chief Terry Esco.
Steffman attended Davidson County Community College before earning his P.O.S.T. certification from the Georgia Police Academy. He was worked in law enforcement for fourteen years with the last nine years in Braselton.
An advocate of community policing, Steffman says “it gives the public a better understanding of our jobs and citizens are open to the personal feeling of the Braselton Police Department. We stress visibility; after all, much of our work is not adversarial.”
Since his promotion, Steffman has been cross-training and learning the administrative functions of the department. The 37-year-old says he recognizes the role as having more opportunity to communicate and work with law enforcement agencies in other cities and counties as well as state and federal agencies.
Chief Esco said, “Captain Steffman brings with him many years of patrol and criminal investigation experience, and he has built a good rapport with the community. His knowledge and skills make him a great asset to this department.”
“I am looking forward to being more hands-on, assisting the entire department and, of course, keeping Braselton safe,” Steffman added.
