Atlantic County Sheriff Eric Scheffler promoted three officers in a ceremony held at the Atlantic County Courthouse this month.

William Brennan was promoted to the rank of captain, Timothy Brown was promoted to the rank of lieutenant, and Gregory Engstler was promoted to the rank of sergeant.

Brennan has been serving with the Atlantic County Sheriff’s Office since January 2008.

During his career, Brennan has served in nearly every assignment, having most recently been assigned to oversee the Office of Professional Standards.

His promotion will see him serving as operations commander overseeing the daily functions of the agency.

Brown has been with the Atlantic County Sheriff’s Office since 2007. He started as a court officer and worked in the Warrants Unit, and as a State Police Narcotics Task Force detective.

During his time as sergeant, he supervised the Civil Courthouse and served as a detective sergeant in the Warrants Unit. Recently, he helped form the new Municipal Courthouse Unit.

Engstler began his career as a corrections officer in September 2005.

After a brief stint as a municipal officer, Egnstler was hired by the Sheriff’s Office and has served as an officer and detective. His most recent assignment was with the FBI Task Force.

Scheffler spoke highly of the three officers.

“They come to work each day to make the office better and to serve the public to the best of their ability,” he said.
