Individuals promoted at Sergeant Pinning Ceremonies

A number of individuals were promoted at Sergeant Pinning Ceremonies recently at the Fred House Academy in Draper and at the Central Utah Correctional Facility.
Altogether, 30 of the 110 individuals who applied for sergeant passed the testing process. The process is both intimidating and difficult, including a written test, a practical test, a 15-minute panel presentation and interviews.
“I can assure you that our process is not an easy process to promote in, so as everyone gets their stripes today and wears them, you should be proud,” said Lieutenant Cory Rich at the ceremony on Monday.
Spencer Turley, Division of Prison Operations Director, and Brian Nielson, Executive Director, also provided remarks at Monday’s event.
