LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new group of officers just moved up in the ranks of LMPD.
Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad and Mayor Greg Fischer officially promoted 15 officers at a ceremony this morning. Friends, family and a host of fellow officers filled the Muhammad Ali Center for the event.
The police department now has 11 new sergeants, two new lieutenants and two new majors.
"Getting promoted is always a great thing," said Greg Burns, who was promoted to the rank of Major. "It doesn't happen for everybody, so when it does, it is probably the most special day you can have as a police officer, besides the day you graduate."
Combined, the officers bring more than 200 years of law enforcement experience to the Louisville Metro Police Department.
