Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office Promotes New Lieutenant
On Sunday February 3, 2013, Sheriff Jerry L. Clayton announced that Sergeant Marlene Radzik had been promoted as the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office next Police Services Lieutenant.
“A very competitive, comprehensive promotional assessment process assures that the community is benefitting from the promotion of an exceptionally competent command officer to an important role within the Sheriff’s Office”, stated Police Services Commander Dieter Heren. “Marlene is respected among her peers and brings a wealth of experience and professional insight into what works well in assuring the timely and effective delivery of community-based police services.”
Lieutenant Radzik has served Washtenaw County for nearly 24 years as a Corrections Officer, Deputy Sheriff, LAWNET Detective, and most recently as Police Services Sergeant. Her role as a Sergeant has included shift supervision, her present service as the Lodi-Manchester Community Sergeant and a time period where she served as an Acting Lieutenant while managing a special neighborhood enforcement team that focused on the Macarthur Blvd. area. She has served on the Underwater Search & Recovery Team in the past and is currently the Deputy Commander of the Metro-Crisis Negotiation Team.
“Lieutenant Radzik loves her job, her peers and this community,” said Derrick Jackson, Director of Community Engagement, “when I think of Marlene, I think of the great work she did while working with the residents of Macarthur Blvd. and the way she pulled a community together to focus on the root causes of addiction and prostitution with the E.A.S.Y. project.”
Lt. Radzik will remain assigned to the Lodi-Manchester collaboration until an appropriate transition can take place. Please join the Sheriff’s Office in congratulating Lt. Radzik upon her promotion and new role.
