Lubbock Police Appoints New Asst. Chief

The Lubbock Police Department is calling a new man, "Assistant Chief of Police".

Thomas Esparza was promoted from Captain to Assistant Chief of Police over Investigative Divisions. He replaces Randy Ward who retired Friday. It will be his job to oversee crimes against persons, juveniles, property and narcotics.

In 2004, Esparza would like to see the police department move forward with hiring new officers. "We have been doing some extensive and intensive recruiting and we're getting ready to start a class in January," says Esparza.

Esparza adds that the Police Department will ask the City Council to authorize a recruiting class of 25 to 30 officers. If approved, that would give the department a force of more than 320.
