Brentwood Police Department Captain Tommy Campsey, the longest tenured employee of the city of Brentwood with 36 years of service, retired this month. He started as a Brentwood police officer in September of 1977.
Campsey has won numerous awards and accolades over his almost four decades of service including investigative, service and life-saving awards, including the National Top Cop Award in 2003 and most recently the Life Saving Award, Meritorious Service Award, and Distinguished Service Award from the BPD.
Assistant Police Chief Tommy Walsh remembers Campsey’s selfless aid when Walsh was shot on May 6, 2002 in the line of duty during a Brentwood bank robbery.
“Captain Campsey has been a mentor and a friend to me for 25 years. He was there for me when I needed him most on May 6, 2002 and has always been a loyal and compassionate member of our department. I am thankful to be called his friend and wish him the very best in his retirement,” said Walsh.
