Employee Accomplishments

Professional Training & Certifications 
The City of Creedmoor's management staff encourages employees to pursue training and certification to enhance their skills and qualifications. Often the training and certifications are required for compliance with federal, state, or other regulations; however just as often employees pursue additional training to enable them to better serve the citizens of Creedmoor.  In addition, City Management recognizes employees and teams that strive to raise the standard of professionalism for their respective departments, and ultimately the entire City of Creedmoor staff.

With the realization that this often calls for sacrifice above and beyond the job requirements, the Mayor and Board of Commissioners recognize employees for their efforts during their public meetings. City management and elected officials applaud these employees for their dedication and commitment to professional and personal development.

Kathi McCorkle CMC Designation
  City Clerk Receives CMC Designation
Creedmoor City Clerk Kathleen McCorkle recently earned the designation of Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) awarded by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC). IIMC grants the CMC designation to municipal clerks who complete demanding education and employment requirements and who have demonstrated mastery of administrative skills critical to good government. Ms. McCorkle has served in the position of City Clerk for Creedmoor since August 2015.
  The 2017 Granville County Crime Stoppers Banquet was held on October 24, 2017 at the First Baptist Church of Creedmoor. Each year, law enforcement agencies across Granville County are asked to select one officer from their ranks as their agency’s “Officer of the Year”.

Many of the characteristics used to describe Creedmoor Police Department’s 2017 Crime Stoppers “Officer of the Year” may not be the stereotypical terms commonly ascribed to police officers. This officer is kind, caring, patient, and open-minded. When it comes to assisting others, the word “no” simply does not exist in his vocabulary. He is a dad to his girls at home as well as the young officers at work. However, don’t let the big heart and teddy bear-like demeanor fool you; thus far in 2017, he has obtained 59 felony and countless misdemeanor arrests. This officer has also never forgotten his roots as a patrol officer while fully embracing his role of detective. Earlier this year, he was nominated by his peers and received the Creedmoor Police Department’s Silver Bullet Award for Teamwork.

The Creedmoor Police Department’s 2017 Granville County Crime Stoppers “Officer of the Year” award recipient is Detective Robert Eugene Harris.
