Recognition of the Chapel Hill- Carrboro Chamber of Commerce Firefighter and Police Officer of the Year


The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce honored Sergeant Ryan Daniels, as Carrboro Police Officer of the Year and Relief Driver David Riggs, as Carrboro Firefighter of the Year  at their 2018 Salute to Community Heroes. 

Sergeant Ryan Daniels began a career in law enforcement in 2002 with the Chesterfield County Police in Virginia. He started with the Carrboro Police Department in 2008 as a patrol officer and now serves as a sergeant in the Investigations Division. In addition to working as a highly skilled Investigator, Daniels fulfills the role of team leader for the department’s Critical Incident Unit. In this role, he coordinates and manages all aspects of the team, including training and equipment. Daniels is known within his department for his dedication, law enforcement knowledge and going beyond his regular duty assignments. For his commitment to safety, we are proud to recognize Sergeant Daniels as the 2018 Carrboro Police Officer of the Year.

Relief Driver David Riggs was nominated by colleagues for his attention to detail and work ethic. He manages several projects and has been a huge asset to the department in his tenure. Riggs also mentors and coaches new employees, sharing his wealth of knowledge. He remains calm under pressure during high stress emergency incidents and always provides the best possible customer service to our residents. In the firefighter through driver ranks, he has the distinction of being the longest serving fire service member with 24 years of service dedicated to the Town of Carrboro. Riggs exemplifies the department’s core values of integrity, dedication, and excellence and motto, exceeding expectations, in all he does. Congratulations, Relief Driver David Riggs, on this recognition by your colleagues as Firefighter of the Year for 2018.
