Lynchburg Police Department Capt. Ken R. Edwards was promoted to Deputy Chief Thursday, formally rounding out the department’s senior command staff after former Police Chief Raul Diaz resigned in August.
Current Police Chief Ryan Zuidema, who preceded Edwards as deputy chief, made the announcement Friday at the department’s swearing-in ceremony for new officers.
Zuidema said he tapped Edwards for the role based on his lengthy experience with the LPD and because of the diverse range of institutional knowledge he has accrued since joining the force.
