(KAIR)--A pinning ceremony was held April 15 at Atchison City Hall, as three Atchison Police Officers received a promotion.  

Named to the rank of Lieutenant during the ceremony were Travis Eichelberger, Al Kelly, and Kory Webb.  

According to a news release from the City of Atchison, all three earned gold bars and will provide leadership over separate divisions as the department undergoes a slight modification in structure. The change follows the March retirement of Captain Cary Stone.  

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, in the release, called the work of all three “tremendous,” adding that they’ve earned the positions.  Eichelberger, a 12-year member of the department, was promoted from the rank of detective, and will lead investigations.  Kelly and Webb are both 20-year members, and formerly served under the rank of sergeant.  Kelly will lead the patrol unit while Webb will oversee special services.  

Atchison City Manager Becky Berger, in the release, called public safety “one of the most important services” the city provides, adding that the promotions will help the City “maintain the stability and structure necessary to provide a top-notch police force.”  The promotions were effective immediately.
