Phenix City police promote 5 officers

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - The Phenix City Police Department held a ceremony to celebrate the promotions of several of its officers on Friday.

Assistant Chief of Police Gail Green, Captain George Staudinger, Lieutenant Darrell Lassiter, Sergeant Robert Isabel, and Corporal Kristina Cobb all received promotions for their hard work with the force.

The new promoted officers were pinned and had to recite and sign an oath to the department.

"Taking on that kind of responsibility as a deputy chief, as a captain, a lieutenant, a sergeant and corporal, those are not lightly to be taken lightly," said Chief Ray Smith. "There's going to be some heavy responsibility to come with that."

"I'm very excited and I hope to do a good job for the City," Green said.

About 100 people attended the ceremony.
