14 WPD officers promoted


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- It was a big day for several members of the Wilmington Police Department. The department promoted 14 officers during a ceremony this afternoon.

The men and women working their way up through the ranks say it took hard work and dedication to the community. Officers agree the effort is worth it when you're able to celebrate with your friends and family.

"As all police officers know the police community is a very tight-knit community," Cpl. Kevin Smith said. "It's more like family. So the opportunity to be here with your extended family is a great event."

Chief Ralph Evangelous says he is proud of his department and how far they have come.
