7 Raleigh County Deputies promoted

Posted: Updated:

Seven Raleigh County Sheriff's Deputies were promoted on Monday.

A small ceremony was held with their families and close friends to celebrate. Sheriff Steve Tanner announced their new ranks and presented to them certificates and their new badges.

Newly appointed Captain J. E. Bare said all of them are deserving of their new titles.

"I've been in each one of their positions from Sergeant to Lieutenant until now. I think it's a bonding experience, they will find out what it's like to lead and be responsible for the people in their shift. I think everyone will do the Sheriff's Department proud," Captain Bare said.

A cake and small lunch was provided for family and friends.
