    Our department is looking into ways to improve promotional ceremonies.  Can anyone offer any ideas or what their department does for promotions?  Thanks

    Without knowing what you currently do or what you or the department think is lacking, it is kind of hard to make suggestions.

    Our current promotional ceremony is the chief hands you a new badge.  The retirement is the chief hands you a plaque.  There is no formal ceremony for either.  Our department wants to make it better.  Does your departments make a special presentation that includes honor guards, city/county leaders, speakers, families, or does the officer choose what they want to be included?  Thanks for your help.

    If you say you value your supervisors (or any employee), wouldn't you want some kind of ceremony?

    Our department does it at City Hall. Usually late afternoon. Family and friends are invited. There may a short speech or two but nothing fancy. Our color guard is there. Everyone is brought up one by one and given their star. There are light snacks afterwards where we all mingle for a bit. Low key but enjoyable.

    And . . . .  a quick peer support note. When the promotion list comes out and someone has been passed over, be sure to give those that have been passed over a call.
