Two Officers Promoted

B. Squires and S. Hunt

The promotions are in.  Officer Bill Squires is being promoted to sergeant and Sgt. Steve Hunt to lieutenant.

This was a tough decision because we had some excellent candidates to choose from, but both Bill and Steve have proven leadership ability and I’m confident they’ll do a great job.

Bill joined the IFPD in September 1995.  He has served in patrol, detectives, and intelligence.  He also knows how to hit the target.  He’s a firearms and tactics instructor and is currently the SWAT team leader. 

Steve joined us in July 1993 after serving as a Marine from 1988 to 1993.  He’s had a variety of assignments in the department including patrol, detectives, and school resource officer.  He was promoted to sergeant in March 2001.

Both Bill and Steve have been awarded Supervisor of the Year.  What else do these guys have in common besides their reluctance to smile for the camera?  Both are knights in shinning armor who are dedicated to keeping our community safe from those that would do us harm.
