Brad Shirley, Chief, Boiling Springs Police Department
Chief Shirley has demonstrated a commitment to ensuring that victims of sexual violence are treated with respect throughout the criminal investigation process. Chief Shirley works with RCC staff to ensure that victims have the support of an RCC advocate during law enforcement interviews. In addition to working with survivors in a trauma-informed approach, Chief Shirley is extremely knowledgeable about sexual violence and fully understands the importance of the relationship between law enforcement and advocates.
"I'm not sure that there is just one. There are several from the "Justice League" that I certainly love to imitate."
I agreed to be a hero in heels because:
"We (law enforcement) are in a unique position to work closely with victims, offenders, and advocacy groups regarding sexual assaults. I hope that by participating in "heroes in heels" I can demonstrate our agency's commitment to sexual assault prevention and advocacy."
