ST. LUCIE COUNTY -

Two long-time St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office employees were promoted recently.

Capt. Michael Graves was promoted to major and will be director of law enforcement, St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara said at a promotion ceremony.

Sheriff Mascara also promoted Lt. Jerry Rothman to captain. He will be in charge of criminal investigations and replaces Capt. Graves.

The promotions came about because of the retirement of Maj. Mike Monahan, who was director of law enforcement.

Maj. Graves has been with the sheriff's office since January 1985 and was originally from Wheeling, W.Va., the sheriff said.

Before joining the sheriff's office, Maj. Graves worked at the Indian River Correctional Institution and the Fort Pierce Police Department where he was a detective and a patrol officer, Sheriff Mascara said.

At the sheriff's office, he was in charge of crime prevention and eventually became captain of support services. He also worked in the professional standards division, headed patrol and then criminal investigations.

The sheriff said Maj. Graves is proficient in karate.

Capt. Rothman, who moved to St. Lucie County from Broward County, began as a road patrol deputy in 1985, the sheriff said.

Sheriff Mascara said Capt. Rothman was instrumental in the office getting its first accreditation and has been involved statewide with accreditation of law enforcement agencies.

As a lieutenant, he supervised accreditation, records and training and has been involved in union contract negotiations, the sheriff said.
