PRESCOTT – The Prescott Police Department announces the promotion of two officers to patrol sergeant and one part-time officer to full-time officer.
Officers Gary Krutke and Mark Schultz are now sergeants and Officer Jesse Neely is now a full-time officer.
“I am very pleased with how Sergeants Krutke and Schultz have performed their new duties,” said Chief of Police Mike R. Bondarenko. “They work the second shift, so we now have a supervisor on duty at nights and on weekends. It has been very beneficial to the department and the city.”
Neely was hired part-time in May and promoted to full-time officer on October 10. He fills a vacancy created by a resignation earlier this year.
Krutke joined the Police Department in 2000. Schultz has been a Prescott police officer since 2006.
“Officer Neely came to us from the Baldwin, Wis., Police Department where he worked part-time for two years,” Bondarenko said. “He worked three years full-time for the Woodville, Wis., Police Department. He was also a police officer in the military and later worked for the Department of Defense as a police officer.”
Bondarenko said the promotions were approved by the Police Commission.
The Police Department has eight full-time and four part-time officers.
