Toledo police announce reassignments


Toledo police personnel are shuffling around the department, filling vacancies that were left after recent promotions.

An order that went out to the department today moves Lt. Waylond Rider from day-shift operations at the Scott Park District Station to head the property crimes section.

An order has not yet been given on where Lt. Dan Gerken, who currently heads property crimes, will go.

Lt. Jason Brown will move from internal affairs to planning.

Sgt. Kevin Braun, who was assigned to operations, will move to support services as Deputy Chief George Kral's assistant.

There are more positions that must be filled, including the lieutenant in the crimes-against-persons section which was most recently occupied by now Chief William Moton, and at least three captain positions, two from the promotions of Deputy Chief James O'Bryant and Deputy Chief Kral. The third captain's spot was opened when Leo Eggert resigned earlier this month.
