Three Duquesne police officers were promoted to sergeant at the recommendation of Police Chief Thomas Dunlevy.

This week, city council approved a motion 5-0 to promote officers Melissa Kuks, James Foster and Nick Manday.

Kuks is a 14-year veteran of the department. Dunlevy said she "excels at community relations and has an excellent rapport with the community." She will be taking on the responsibilities of police administrator.

Foster, who currently serves as a field training officer, has a master’s degree in the administration of criminal justice and will be in charge of patrol, Dunlevy said.

Manday served in the Marines and has "strong ethical values and exemplary leadership skills," Dunlevy said. Manday will be in charge of narcotics.

Duquesne Police Department answered 561 calls for the month of February, which resulted in 47 arrests and 119 citations. Calls for service included 17 abandoned motor vehicles, 18 crashes, 22 alarms, seven burglaries, 20 disturbances, 37 domestics, 15 juveniles, three robberies and seven reports of shots fired.
