Det. Brad Nichols has won the Cornelius Police Dept. “Employee of the Quarter” award for going above and beyond his duties as an officer and as a detective. Patrol officers routinely seek him out for assistance with cases; he has a vast knowledge of case law; and is always willing to share with others his opinions on cases.

He also worked a missing persons case locating a 17-year-old runaway in another state. “Det. Nichols is a kind and humble man who does not brag or boast about what he has done for the department.

He comes to work every day with a positive attitude, completing his duties with honesty and integrity,” the press release says.
