Five West Deptford police officers were promoted Thursday night, as the township's police department continued the process of filling positions left vacant by recent retirements.
Cpl. John Chambers and Detective Cpl. Michael Cramer were each elevated to sergeant, and Ptl. James Loomis, Ptl. Kevin Donahue and Investigator Richard Henry were all promoted to corporal.
The retirements have left the police department down five officers, Chief Craig Mangano said, and there isn't a firm timeline on when the department may be back up to its full complement of 41 officers.
The five officers join and among the department's promotions so far this year.
