ROCKY MOUNT – The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles’ License and Theft Bureau held graduation ceremonies Friday for its 25th and 26th Basic Inspector Class at Nash Community College in Rocky Mount. The twenty-four new inspectors will be assigned to seven districts throughout the state. They will join 138 other inspectors who primarily investigate vehicle theft, title fraud, driver license ID card fraud, and vehicle odometer fraud.
“I am proud of the dedication and responsibilities each of these graduates have demonstrated today,” said License and Theft Bureau Director Colonel Eric Copeland. “Our citizens will depend on them as a group of public servants representing the oldest state law enforcement agency in North Carolina.”
The new inspectors are: Kenneth Black, Megan Brown, Colman Boyd, Jonathan Carroll, Cameron Harrison, Kenneth Hester, Tyima Jenkins, Erik Oian, Sean Parker, Maxwell Pryer, Bradley Whitmire, Kamille Thomas-Brown, Bobby Clay, Jr., Travis Diggs, Kyle Emanuel, Jeremiah Gose, Christjon Krieger, Jonathan Marshburn, William McDowell, Rachel Shirley, Grayson Vass, Hannah Warren, Charles Wilkins and Catherine Wilson.
The inspectors enforce the rules and regulations governing vehicle dealers, vehicle safety and emissions inspection stations, vehicle towing and storage facilities, and vehicle repair businesses.
The License and Theft Bureau was created in 1921 by the N.C. General Assembly. It is the oldest state law enforcement agency in North Carolina.
