Juneau detective promoted to sergeant

Krag Campbell, Juneau Police Department

A Juneau Police Department detective has been promoted to the rank of a sergeant, filling a vacancy left open by a sergeant who retired last year.

Krag Campbell was selected for the promotion following assessment testing held by JPD and the City and Borough of Juneau’s Human Resources department. He will be officially sworn in during a invitation-only ceremony at the JPD station later this month.

“It was a very competitive process and a very good process,” JPD spokesman Lt. David Campbell said by phone. “I think Krag is an excellent candidate.”

Seven other officers at JPD had applied for the position, which was vacated by Sgt. Paul Hatch who retired last February after nearly 21 years of service.

K. Campbell’s previous assignment was with the JPD investigations unit specializing in property crimes. He has worked for JPD for more than 10 years and is a member of JPD’s SWAT team and an instructor of arrest control tactics and less lethal force. In July 2012 he was named JPD’s first Master Police Officer, a program where senior offices achieve points for excellence in their duties and community involvement.

As a patrol sergeant, K. Campbell will supervise a team of patrol officers. JPD has five patrol teams, each with one sergeant and five officers when fully staffed.
