The Galt Herald and Lodinews.com on July 31 ran stories in their newspapers about the Galt Police Department. These stories told of a new lateral transfer police lieutenant being hired to replace Jim Uptegrove who retired.
So what advancement opportunities remain for the working officers to strive for at the Galt Police Department? These officers will not fill any lieutenant positions because of lateral transfers. Maybe these officers can look forward to being promoted from inside the Galt Police Department ranks to K9 officer, detective, training officer or sergeant. A lieutenant rank does not appear promising without being a good fit person from outside the police department.
Maybe Galt police officers will get to ride a police motorcycle if they are a good fit.
