Great Bend Police Chief David Bailey and Human Resources Director Randy Keasling announced Friday that police Lt. Scott Bieberle has been promoted to the rank of captain. Bieberle has been with the Great Bend Police Department since 1992, most recently serving as lieutenant for the Patrol Division.
“We look forward to the leadership that Capt. Bieberle will provide in this position.” Bailey said.
“Capt. Bieberle will bring much to the city in his new role and we are excited to have him advance into this position,” Keasling said.
The previous captain was Bob Robinson, who had been in the position for 20-plus years before retiring. Robinson returned at the request of Interim City Administrator George Kolb and worked as interim police captain until Bailey was appointed police chief.
Keasling said that there are still open positions and opportunities for promotions within the Great Bend Police Department and the City will continue to work to fill the openings and move the department forward.
