The Deming City Councilors Monday night ratified Mayor Andres Silva’s selection of Assistant Chief Brandon Gigante to serve as the next chief, effective March 16th.
Chief Michael Carillo announced earlier this month that he is resigning effective Friday, March 15th to become the director of the new Grant County Detention Center.
Carillo was recognized at Monday night’s City Council Meeting with a certificate and key to the city. He has served as Deming’s Police Chief since November of 1992.
Gigante has worked for the Deming Police Department since April of 1995. He started as a patrolman, and worked his way through nearly every rank in the department.
He was named assistant chief in July of 2012.
