Two veteran SBPD officers promoted


Two veteran officers were promoted Thursday by the South Bend Police Department.

New Uniform Division Chief Scott Ruszkowski and Investigative Division Chief Steve Smith were sworn in by Police Chief Ron Teachman and Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Family members of the officers were there to participate in the ceremony.

Rusk and Smith both emphasized their commitment to the department and city.

"Our officers and our people in the community, that's it, that's all I've ever strived for - period. Their sanctity, their well-being, that's my number one priority," said Chief Ruszkowski.

"I love this place, I love the people - the men and women that work here," Chief Smith said. "I love this community and I love doing my job every single day."
