COLUMBIA — Columbia Police Chief Ken Burton promoted Capt. Stephen Monticelli of the Columbia Police Department to the rank of deputy chief Friday.

Monticelli, an MU graduate, worked as an officer and a sergeant for the MU Police Department from 1980 to 1991, when he was hired by the Columbia Police Department. He served as an officer, sergeant, captain and most recently as investigations bureau captain until his promotion Friday. He recently received his Master of Business Administration from William Woods University.

Burton also promoted Sgt. Chris Kelley to the rank of lieutenant on Wednesday. Kelley was hired as a police cadet in 1987 and became an officer in 1998. He was promoted to sergeant in 2008 and served in that position until his promotion Wednesday.

Neither Burton nor Monticelli could be reached for comment.
