Lieutenant to captain in 13 years
k9 detective sergeant to lieutenant 13 years.
Then you have an officer who has
been with the force since 1977 and promoted in 2013 to detective sergeant!
seems like a waste of taxpayers money to boost this guys pay at what should be the end of a career since he didn't seem to care about being promoted till the very end. Since retirement is based on the highest three year average! doesn't sound like the most motivated officer! Wonder if he is in the drop program?
This article reads as if the Police department has some serious issues going on with promotions and man power and in house politics

To retguy: Mr. Barber was 3 when he started at the Youngtown Police Dept, since he was born in 1974. Do you really expect Vindy to get anything right?
