Detective Sergeant Bobby Orosco was promoted to patrol captain effective Monday.
Orosco fills the position vacated by Brandon Gigante, who was promoted to police chief in March.
Orosco has 15 years of law enforcement experience, including eight years with the Deming Police Department. He also worked for the Dona Ana County Sheriff’s Department.
Gigante said Orosco’s promotion opens a detective sergeant’s position, which will be advertised internally.
