It was a big day for two Corpus Christi police officers as they received promotions during a special ceremony on Monday.

"This is something very special for me, and I thank everybody for being here," said Captain Anthony Sanders of the Corpus Christi Police Department.

Chief Floyd Simpson promoted Sanders from the rank of lieutenant to the rank of captain, and Rusty Jenkins was promoted from the rank of senior officer to the rank of lieutenant.

Kiii News congratulates both of them on their new responsibilities.
