Twin Lakes to make police detective position permanent

A proposal by Twin Lakes Police Chief Dale Racer to create a rotating detective position within the police department has been altered after discussing the option with the staff and the police officer’s union.

The detective position will now be filled on a more permanent basis using a multi-step competitive process such as was used to fill the lieutenant positions created last year in a re-structuring.

The staffing plan now calls for:

  • Filling one of the vacancies in the lieutenant corps. There had been three positions and only one filled right now.
  • Filling the remaining vacancy in the sworn staff with the highest qualified part-timer — which is Katie Hall.
  • Hiring the detective/investigator position.

The latest plan does not increase the number of sworn officers.
