The Pleasanton Police Department promoted four employees and welcomed three new police officers in a special badge pinning ceremony last week. Sergeants Brandon Stocking and Erik Silacci were promoted to the rank of police lieutenant; Officers Marty Billdt and Chris Lewellyn were promoted to the rank of police sergeant and recent Academy Graduates Katie Emmett, Agatha Socha and Chris Jones were sworn in as Pleasanton’s newest police officers.

Lieutenant Brandon Stocking grew up in rural Solano County. Growing up, he loved hearing stories about his grandfather, a retired Vacaville police lieutenant. Brandon was happy to honor his grandfather’s memory by becoming the second member of his family to become a police lieutenant. Brandon attended the Napa Valley Police Academy as a non-affiliated student and was hired by the Pleasanton Police Department shortly after graduation in 2008. He was an original member of the East County Tactical Team formed in 2011 when the SWAT teams from Pleasanton and Livermore merged. Brandon served three years as a detective and was assigned some of the department’s most significant cases. Brandon was promoted to police sergeant in 2015 and has most recently supervised the Special Enforcement Unit. Brandon holds a bachelor’s degree in leadership from Union Institute and University.
