It's a rise in the ranks for two Tyler police officers.
Officers Mike Malone and Jeff Rackliff were promoted to Sergeant at a ceremony Friday afternoon.
Police Chief Gary Swindle presented them with their new badges and certificates.
There were hugs and plenty of congratulations for the new sergeants. The men have been with the department over 5 years and passed a number of tests to be promoted to the higher rank.
