There's a new face among the cops at the top of Bryan PD.
Lieutenant Curtis Darby assumed the rank of Assistant Chief Monday afternoon in a ceremony at the municipal building.
The 22-year veteran of BPD takes over as the head of the operations support bureau after the reassignment of now-former assistant chief David Slanker.
It's been a big year for Darby, as just a couple months ago, he won election to Iola's city council in the town's first elections.
He begins work in his new role with Bryan PD immediately.
