Lincoln City Police Department would like to congratulate our newly promoted Sergeant David Broderick, who was sworn in on May 3rd in the Lincoln City Council Chambers.
Sgt. Broderick has been involved in law enforcement for almost 25 years. After graduating from Taft High School in 1989, he began his career as an MP in the Air Force and served for four years. After being discharged, he became a Reserve Officer with Lincoln City Police for two years before joining the Newport Police Department in 1998.
He came back to LCPD in January of 2005, where he worked as a Patrol Officer, a Field Training Officer, a Range Master, and a member of SWAT before being appointed to Detective in 2007. As a Detective, he was a member of LINT before it was disbanded in 2015, and continued to serve as a Narcotics Detective for LCPD, as well as being a member of the Lincoln County Major Crime Team.
In addition to his impressive years of experience, Sgt. Broderick also received the Officer of the Year award at the Law Enforcement Recognition Banquet (LERB) in both 2008 and 2013, and he continues to be a Range Master and the administrator of our agency’s FTEP program.
As a sergeant, he hopes to support Chief Palmer during his transition, and help the department move forward during this exciting time of change with the prospect of a new building and radio system in our future.
Congratulations, Sgt. Broderick!
