MANDAN, N.D. - It was a triple promotion ceremony Nov. 15 at the Mandan Police Department.
Lori Flaten, a 40-year veteran of the Mandan PD, was promoted to Deputy Chief.
Two other members of her shift were also promoted.
Flaten says this will probably be her last step before retirement.
"I've been with the department a long time and so it's just the next step up. I think it's a good way to round my career out. I'm not going to be around forever and it's a good way to end it I think," said Lori Flaten, Mandan PD Deputy Chief.
Mandan Police also have a new lieutenant, Rick Widicker, and a new sergeant, April Bowman.
