On April 30, 2021, the Sebastian Police Department held a promotional badge pinning ceremony and 2020’s Officer and Employee of the year awards celebrating the hard work and dedication these officers, volunteers, and civilian employees have demonstrated.

Also, those who received promotions at the Sebastian Police Department were:

  • Lieutenant Tim Wood to Captain
  • Sergeant Rob Vafiades to Lieutenant
  • K9 Officer Roy Cole to Sergeant
  • Corporal Pete Miller to Sergeant
  • Officer Ryan Matthews to Corporal
  • Colleen Coppola was promoted to Crime Scene Supervisor
