John Tanner has been promoted to the rank of sergeant in the Sylvania Township police department, with the recent approval of the township trustees.
Deputy Chief Jim Rettig said the new sergeant has spent most of his career as a patrol officer, but for a time had been assigned to detective work as part of a task force attached to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Chief Rettig said Sgt. Tanner has received numerous departmental citations for superior performance over his career as well as an award from MADD for enforcement of drunk driving laws and an honorable mention in a national “Top Cop” competition sponsored by the National Association of Police Organizations.
Sgt. Tanner was on top of the remaining promotion list which had been established in 2018.
