WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Acting Deputy Chief of the West Sacramento Police Department, Carl Crouch, has been promoted to the full rank of Deputy Chief, the department announced Wednesday.
Crouch’s promotion comes around one year and two months following his promotion from Lieutenant to Acting Deputy Chief in February of 2020. Crouch is a department veteran of over 20 years, having first joined the force in 1998.
Crouch first worked as a Police Officer for 5 years before being promoted to the rank of Sergeant in 2007, eventually being assigned Lead Investigations Seargent in 2014. He also worked as a West Capitol / Measure K Officer in 2003 and 2012, serving as Acting Lieutenant for three terms, first from September 2013 to April 2014, again from February 2016 to July 2016, and finally from March 2017 until April 2017, finally being promoted to Lieutenant in August. Public records showed Crouch made over $100,000 in 2016.
The department wished well to Crouch across their social media platforms Wednesday in an announcement of his promotion, which happened last week.
“With over 20 years of service to the department, and our community, he has become a partner and trusted resource for us all,” a statement read. “Deputy Chief Crouch was sworn in last week, and we look forward to his continued leadership!”
