Tuesday, April 1, 2014, in front of family, friends and fellow co-workers, Mason County Sheriff Casey Salisbury promoted a new Patrol Lieutenant & a new Jail Lieutenant, as well as giving the oath of office and swearing in a new Reserve Deputy Sheriff.

For the first time since 1996 when former Lieutenant Howard Armfield was promoted to Chief Civil Deputy, a new Patrol Lieutenant position was finally filled today.  Travis Adams was promoted from Sergeant to Lieutenant and becomes the newest member of Sheriff Salisbury’s administrative staff.

For the very first time in the history of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, the position of Jail Lieutenant was created.  Cindy Kasten was promoted from Jail Sergeant to Jail Lieutenant and also becomes a new member of Sheriff Salisbury’s administrative staff.

Both Lieutenants had their badges and their new lieutenant bars pinned onto their uniforms by family members.

Sheriff Salisbury stated to a room full of family, friends and fellow Sheriff’s Office employees, that today is a very important day in the history of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office as well as for all citizens, for on this day we now have another layer of supervision and administrative support that directly contributes to the service we provide and helps us accomplish our mission to serve the citizens of Mason County.

Before the promotion ceremony began, Clayton Marcheen was sworn in and administered the oath of office as the newest Reserve Deputy Sheriff.  His son pinned his badge on while his wife looked on.  Sheriff Salisbury stated that we are fortunate to have people like Reserve Deputy Marcheen, who take an active part in volunteering to help protect and serve the community they live in.
