Washington Mayor Brenda Davis on Tuesday promoted Sgt. Christopher Luppino to police chief.

Luppino, 41, has served 18 years in the department, most recently heading its detective unit. He takes charge immediately of the 30-member department.

Detective Lt. Dan Stanek, who served as officer-in-charge for a week, returns to his normal duties, Davis said. Stanek headed the department temporarily after the sudden retirement of Capt. Robert Wilson on April 29. Wilson had been serving as officer-in-charge following the February resignation of Chief Robert Lemons, who chose to return to a lieutenant.

“I look forward to moving the department forward,” said Luppino , a Washington resident. “I'm not going to comment on the past.”
