KENTWOOD, Mich. — Kentwood has selected its next deputy police chief.

Capt. Bryan Litwin has been with the Kentwood Police Department for over 20 years, most recently serving as captain of the Professional Standards Division. Litwin is taking over the position for Richard Roberts, who was appointed as police chief in November.

“The leadership, communication and strategic planning skills Bryan has demonstrated during his more than 20 years of experience in law enforcement with the Kentwood Police Department made him the perfect candidate for this position,” Roberts said in a release. “He has proven to be an invaluable asset to the department’s success, demonstrating his clear dedication to the department, profession and service to our residents.”

“I have complete confidence Bryan will continue to demonstrate outstanding leadership in his new role.”
