The Idaho Springs Police Department has promoted patrol officer Glenn Hardey to detective.
Police Chief Dave Wohlers said Hardey is a good fit for the position because he’s familiar with working on cases in a small-town environment.
Hardey was hired eight months ago as a patrolman. As a detective, he will be paid $22.17 an hour.
“I’m a mountain kid. I grew up in the mountains of Colorado. I enjoy being in the mountains, living and working in the mountains,” Hardey said.
