San Luis police name second in command
SAN LUIS, Ariz. — Javier Arellano, a 17-year veteran of this city's police force, is its newly appointed second in command.
Arellano, who has served as a lieutenant in the department, was named police commander this month after the city began accepting applications in November.
Arellano, the only applicant for the post, succeeds Arturo Ramos. Ramos, who joined the department as commander in 2011, was named acting police chief in May and later appointed to that post on a permanent basis.
Arellano will supervise employees in both the department's administration and operations divisions, and will serve as head of the department in Ramos' absence.
He was not immediately available for comment this week.
Arellano, 41, attended Kofa High School and is a graduate of Arizona Western College and Northern Arizona University, with a degree in justice administration. He is due to be sworn into his post during the San Luis City Council's Jan. 23 meeting.
