Three Richland County sheriff's deputies were promoted to sergreant during a ceremony Thursday afternoon.

Sheriff Steve Sheldon administered the oath of office to 17-year veterans Steve Boyd and Brian Gunder, and 21-year veteran Rich Eichinger. 

Deputy Gary Keener replaces Gunder as community policing officer.  

The promotions are made possible by the retirement of one sergeant, the promotion of another to lieutenant, and the reinstatement of a sergeant's position.

Boyd has been on the Dive Team since 2004, and was 2006 Deputy of the Year.  He was also a member of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force.

Gunder is a 17-year member of the Dive Team, and spent eight years as a K-9 officer, and is an officer with the Violent Fugitive Task Force.

Eichinger has been a member of the Dive Team, a firearms instructor, a pepper spray instructor, Taser instructor, Radar instructor, and Field Training Officer.  He was Officer of the Year in 2001.
