Strasser has been with the department for 25 years, starting as a patrol officer, the report stated.

Strasser's promotion is part of the department's efforts to create a "better, more lean operation," the report stated. Originally, the department had three lieutenant positions that now have been consolidated into the deputy chief role, the report added. Before her promotion, Strasser was the only lieutenant employed by the department at the time, according to the report.
