The Athens-Clarke County Police Department recently announced that Jeff Clark, Mike Hunsinger and Jerry Saultersto have been promoted to the rank of Deputy Chief as of July 15.
As reported recently in The Red & Black, the office of the Deputy Chief is responsible for all ACCPD bureaus including the Central Communications Bureau, Community Support Services Bureau, Investigations Bureau, Standards and Training Bureau and Patrol Bureau. The deputy chief reports to the chief of police who then reports to the county manager.
Upon Spruill’s arrival in February, Clark and Hunsinger served as interim deputy chiefs, while Saulters was the captain of the Criminal Investigations Bureau.
“The Deputy Chief position requires an individual to possess an extensive law enforcement background, excellent communication skills, and a deep knowledge of the agency,” Spruill said in a news release. “Their combined 73 years of experience will be a great asset.”
Clark began his law enforcement career at ACCPD in 1997. During his time with ACCPD, he served as a sergeant and lieutenant in both the Uniform Patrol and Criminal Investigations Bureaus.
In 1987, Hunsinger started his career of law enforcement at the University of Georgia Police Department and in 1988, he joined the ACCPD. During his time at ACCPD, Hunsinger served in “all bureaus within the agency.” Hunsinger has a Master’s degree in public administration from Clayton State University.
Saulters began his law enforcement career with ACCPD in 1998 as a uniform patrol officer. In 2005, he was assigned to the robbery/homicide unit of the CIB, and in 2007, Saulters was promoted to Sergeant in the CIB. Saulters has served as Lieutenant, Shift Commander, Captain and bureau commander for CIB.
