Two Springfield cops have been named deputy chiefs of the police department.
Lieutenant Dan Mounce will oversee the criminal investigations division, replacing Cliff Buscher… who retired earlier this year. And Lieutenant Dyle Stokes replaces Deputy Chief Bob Markovic as head of administrative services. City officials say taking the deputy chief title away from Markovic was not related to last year’s file shredding scandal in the police department.
Two other lieutenants, Kenny Scarlette and Shawn Handlin, have been named commanders of administrative services and CID, respectively.
