READING, Pa. -

A veteran officer's departure from the Reading police force has led to the shuffling of some department command jobs.

Capt. Stephen Powell, former head of RPD's patrol division, recently left his city job to become chief of the West Reading Police Department. He was officially sworn in Monday.

Capt. Damond Kloc, who has supervised the criminal investigations division since late 2011, has taken Powell's place as patrol leader.

Lt. Jeff Parr has moved from narcotics to take Kloc's place as chief of detectives.
