Yesterday morning, the Pasadena Police Department held a promotional ceremony for three of our personnel, who earned their new ranks through a rigorous testing process.
Lieutenant Thomas Warnke was promoted to the rank of Assistant Chief and had his badge pinned on him by his wife. Sergeant Kelly Bowman was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and was pinned by her daughter. Officer Jesse Baum was promoted to the rank of Sergeant and had his Sergeant badge pinned by his wife. The ceremony was attended by their proud families, friends, and co-workers.
We would like to commend Assistant Chief Warnke, Lieutenant Bowman, and Sergeant Baum for their hard work and dedication and wish them great success in their new roles.
