Springfield’s police chief is shaking up the department’s leadership.

Chief Kenny Winslow promoted two officers to Deputy Chief positions on Friday. Lieutenants Dyle Stokes and Dan Mounce were given their new positions. Winslow says he is trying to surround himself with the best command staff available.

“I picked the people to be on my staff that I thought would be the best complement that would help move this department forward,” Winslow says.

Bill Markovic, who served as a deputy chief, has been reassigned within the department.

Winslow would not comment further on personnel moves within the department but says the promotions had nothing to do with the investigation over the shredding of police documents.
