LEO of the Year

From left, former Lake Jackson Police detective Travis Pate, now a Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office investigator, sheriff’s Sgt. Shane Vandergrifft and Pearland Police Sgt. Ryan Whitley hold the custom-engraved handguns they were presented by the 100 Club of Brazoria County for being named the top three law enforcement officers of the year.

When Michael Shane Vandergrifft earned Officer of the Year recognition during the annual awards ceremony hosted by the Brazoria County 100 Club, it added to a growing list of honors for the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office sergeant. He certainly is a deserving recipient.

Looking at the list of all those considered, however, demonstrates the quality of officers employed by Brazoria County agencies, something we all need to remember when the bad apples are given most of the attention.
