Congratulations to the recently promoted Commanders and Sergeants of the Artesia Police Department! The promotions are the result of many hours of assessments and a point accumulation system that the officers earned while working their way through the assessments.
The list of new Commanders and Sergeants is as follows: Chantel Longway promoted to Commander of Patrol; Jeff Letcher promoted to Commander of Criminal Investigations; David Bailey promoted to Sergeant of Patrol; Beth Hahn promoted to Sergeant of Patrol; Xavier Anaya promoted to Sergeant of Patrol.
Commanders and Sergeants are first-line supervisors who plan, evaluate, assign, and review the work of officers in the department. They also coordinate section activities and participate in police operations.
Thank you for your service to the community! Thank you for leading the way to keep the peace and enforce our laws.
