Following the January retirement of longtime Ripon Police Capt. Chris Stieber, two promotions will be effective Monday, March 29.
Sgt. Bill Wallner has been promoted to captain — second in command to the chief — while officer Bret Henning has been promoted to sergeant.
The promotions have been approved unanimously by the Ripon Police Commission.
Eight officers applied for the two promotions, Chief Dave Lukoski said.
“Each of them were excellent, and the decisions on the promotional process were exceedingly difficult,” he said. “All of the officers involved have outstanding resumes and will make outstanding supervisors in the future.”
