Former Clemson DB named 2016 Cop of the Year

by - Assoc. Editor -

Former Clemson defensive back Chris "PT" Chancellor was named Clemson's 2016 Police Officer of the Year by the Pickens County Municipal Association.

TigerNet spoke with Chancellor on Tuesday morning and said that his "passion for helping people in the community and dedication to serving others" was the reason he became a cop back in 2011.

Some of his duties include answering calls for service and interacting with the community, working car wrecks, writing tickets, solving crimes and community police.

Before his police officer days, Chancellor was signed by the Cleveland Browns as a undrafted free agent in 2010 and also had a stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

On a personal note, I have known Chris for many years, and he is a hard worker that truly loves the Clemson community. If you see him around town and want to show your appreciation for his work as a police officer, buy him a Chipotle burrito. He is completely addicted to that place.
