Carey, who has been interim police chief for about three months, apparently has made a good impression on the mayor.
“He’s just doing a great job. He has the respect of the force. I believe he has respect in the community. He certainly has my respect,” Bach said.
“As of this morning, I could not be more delighted with Chief Carey,” he added.
According to the city’s website:
“Carey joined the Colorado Springs Police Department in 1984, after serving with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office for two years. He has been assigned to Patrol, Metro Vice, Narcotics and Intelligence, Tactical Unit, Training Academy and the Major Crimes Unit.
Interim Chief Carey holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business from Saint Joseph’s University and a Masters Degree in Public Administration from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.”
