Detective Sergeant Capwill was promoted to Sergeant in 2005, and was given the assignment of full-time detective in 2016. Detective Sergeant Capwill has accomplished a great deal in the two years he has spent in the detective position. He specializes in financial, fraud, and other white collar crimes, which have become a pervasive problem in Chagrin Falls, as well as other communities. Detective Sergeant Capwill has worked closely with several other agencies, including those at the federal level, and continues to bring many of his investigations to a successful conclusion. Detective Sergeant Capwill was nominated for the Officer of the Year Award by the department’s clerk, Patricia Chambers. Ms. Chambers cited his continued efforts to bring final dispositions to open cases, his attention to the professional maintenance of the property and evidence room, and his willingness to help her and others in their positions as some of the many reasons he deserved the award in 2018. The Administration agreed with her nomination, and Detective Sergeant Capwill was honored with the award at the Village of Chagrin Falls Council Meeting on December 10th, 2018.
