Lt. Victor Pitman has been with the Cole County Sheriff’s Department for almost two years.

Lt. Stacy Hickman, an 11-year veteran of the department, has been named assistant jail superintendent.

“I’ve known Victor since 1991 and it’s great to work with him again.” said Sheriff Greg White during a Monday press conference. “Stacy has a great knowledge of jail operations, and I think they’ll bring a great vision to their positions.”

Former superintendent Russ Bemboom, an 18-year veteran with the department, resigned in May. He said it was “to pursue another avenue in his career.”
