They may not be the family featured in the much-watched TV drama series Blue Bloods, but the Croys know what it means to continue serving the community as police officers as a family business.
The newest Croy member to join the ranks was Rocky Matthew Croy, Jr., who took his oath of office Monday morning inside the Council Chambers at Elizabethton City Hall.
Preston Cobb, City of Elizabethton Clerk, administered the oath as family, friends and members of EPD were on hand for the ceremony.
Croy, Jr. became a fourth-generation law enforcement officer following in the footsteps of his father, Captain Matthew Croy, Sr., who was sworn in as captain in 2022 and has served EPD since 2007.
Croy, Jr.’s grandfather, Rocky Croy, retired from CCSD, and his great-grandfather, Clyde Croy, retired as a captain with the EPD, serving the city from 1977 to 2005.
He is a graduate of Hampton High School where he played basketball for the Bulldogs.
