NEW PHILADELPHIA — Sheriff Orvis Campbell promoted two deputies to the rank of sergeant on Tuesday.
Sgt. Matt Stein has been a deputy with the Tuscarawas County Sheriff's Office for 22 years, having also spent three years with the Sugarcreek Police Department including working as a supervisor. In addition to continuing to make arrests, he will supervise the department's civil division, the child support deputy and continue to be responsible for entering protection orders and arrest warrants.
Detective Sgt. Adam Fisher began his career as a Central Intelligence Agency police officer in 2006, and spent six years with the Strasburg Police Department, where he was promoted to sergeant. He worked with the Community Corrections Program as a probation officer before joining the sheriff's office in 2014. He was promoted to detective to 2017.
"Everywhere along the line, everybody has seen the impeccable work he's done," Campbell said. "The judges know. Everybody has great respect for his work."
Campbell said Fisher's strengths include being able to quickly accomplish high-tech tasks with computers.
Fisher's twin brother Jason is an officer who was promoted two weeks ago in the Perry Township Police Department in Stark County.
"He probably had that competitive edge to beat his brother," Campell said.
Campbell said Stein's skills are important to assure that documents such as arrest warrants are kept properly, to assure that no one is arrested on a warrant that has been cleared.
"One of his absolute greatest strengths is he's got extreme attention to detail," Campbell said. "He is very precise. We are very lucky to have him in his job, and I say that very sincerely."
