Dysart Police Officer Ray Brady was recently moved to full-time with the local department, quickly taking to the streets in his new role

Brady has been a certified police officer in the state since 2000, working in various places such as Eldora, as a police advisor in Iraq before starting full-time in Dysart mainly over weekends. A veteran of the US Marine Corps, Brady transitioned to police work after his time in the military. He applied for the position with Jeremy Stenda moving to another community for a similar position earlier this summer.

While in Dysart, Brady's duties include patrolling the town, responding to local calls and "protect and serve local laws and regulations."

Kenneth “Ray” Brady has been patrolling the streets of Dysart in recent weeks, enjoying the town and being full-time with the Dysart Police Department.

"Dysart is a nice, quiet town and very friendly," Brady said. "Definitely a golf cart centric town. I think I've seen more golf carts here than any other towns I've lived in combined. I've seen more folks these past two weeks come out and be friendly to me."

On duty, Brady enjoys working with computers and finds law enforcement "fulfilling" as a career. When the position opened for him to move up to full-time, he accepted an offer from Dysart Police Chief Joe Huls to apply.

"I want to be seasoned law enforcement, not hungry and hitting everyone who hasn't got their complete stop at stop sign," Brady said. "I understand everyone makes mistakes, so not every act is a criminal intent. Just want to do my job."

Though born Kenneth Raymond, Brady was called by his middle name "Raymond" at a young age and initially "hated it". After the shortening of his name, Ray is the name Dysart residents can call their newest full-time officer going forward.
