IMLAY CITY — On the verge of his 24th anniversary with the Imlay City Police Department, Roger Czap was the center of attention on Thursday.

The occasion was Czap's promotion to the position of lieutenant, an honor that was hard-earned and well-deserved, said Police Chief John Stano.

With a large entourage of fellow officers, city officials, friends and well-wishers on hand, Czap was presented with his new gold badge by recently-retired police Chief Arlan Winslow.

Stano noted it was a fitting touch to a ceremony that included public accolades and private congratulations from those in the audience at the Imlay City Hall.

"This process had been in the works for some time, and it was an easy decision," said Stano. "Roger has a long and distinguished career as a police officer, both here and in Capac and Brown City.

"He is looked up to by all of us—and not just because he's a tall man," quipped Stano. "He's a leader on the police department and in the community."

The newly-promoted Lt. Czap offered kudos and appreciation to his fellow officers, and to Chief Stano in particular.

"A lot of you know I had applied for the chief's position and I was disappointed when I didn't get it," said Czap. "But after working with John (Stano), I believe he was the best man for the job. I would have hired him myself.

"This is where I belong," Czap continued. "And I want to thank everyone for their support."

Lt. Czap was accompanied at the ceremony by his wife, Liz. Among the local police and law enforcement officers on hand were: Lapeer County Undersheriff Bob Rapson, Lapeer County Prosecutor Byron Konschuh, Lt. James McClain, LCSD; Lt. Duane Engelhardt, LCSD; Chief Bill Marshall, Lapeer Twp.; Chief Walt Sierakow-ski, Metamora Twp.; Chief Pat Nael, Almont; and Vic Martin, Lapeer County Central Dispatch.
