The Sheriff’s Office reorganization approved by the Board of Supervisors earlier this month has led to several promotions along with the addition of another assistant sheriff.
The naming of Capt. Tom Gallagher as assistant sheriff was already announced but Tuesday the Sheriff’s Office also released other changes coming to the department. Lt. Lisa Williams, who previously headed the Half Moon Bay police bureau and the Maguire Correctional Facility, is being promoted to captain in charge of the North County Patrol Bureau. The bureau includes the north county, the coast, contract cities of Millbrae and Half Moon Bay and investigations within those boundaries.
Replacing Williams at Maguire is Lt. Mark Robbins who is being promoted to captain.
Sgt. Mark Kuykendall, formerly assigned to patrol, is being promoted to lieutenant assigned as swing shift watch commander. Sgt. Scott Kirkpatrick is being promoted to lieutenant at Maguire.
The Sheriff’s Office is also promoting four deputies to sergeant and three lateral police officers from adjacent agencies will be named deputy sheriffs.
All will be officially promoted at a ceremony Thursday morning at which two new correctional officers will be sworn in and three civilian staff members welcomed.
The ceremony is 10 a.m. Thursday, May 29 at the Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway, Redwood City.
