Wilder Officer Christopher Vance Promoted to Sergeant

Sgt. Christopher Vance is congratulated by Wilder Mayor Robert Arnold after taking his oath of office.

Wilder city officials, family and fellow officers were on hand at the city council meeting in October to congratulate Christopher Vance on his promotion to sergeant in the Wilder Police Department.

A graduate of the Kentucky Police Academy, Vance has served the city as an officer since 2013, coming to the department from the Covington Police Department.

At the meeting Wilder Mayor Robert Arnold said “When he was first hired with the city, it was also my first day on council so the first thing I got to witness as a new council passing a resolution to hire Chris. It’s great having him stay with us all these years and move up through the ranks. We certainly appreciate his effort and commitment to the city.”

Police Chief Chad Martin said his department has undergone many changes lately, and Sergeant Vance has provided important support and leadership throughout this period. “When three of the most senior officers within the department retired in close proximity, Sgt. Vance was instrumental in not only maintaining, but also increasing the overall efficiency of the department by implementing new processes."

Congratulations to Sgt. Vance and the city of Wilder.
