(Seguin) -- Guadalupe County Sheriff Arnold Zwicke is officially announcing the newest captain for the sheriff's office.

Lt. John Koch has been promoted to serve the position alongside Captain Jerry Rios who also was promoted earlier this year.

Zwicke says Koch represents the county well and is appreciative for his service throughout the years.

"John is, I guess you could say, my right hand man now being the other captain now. John has always impressed me when I started back in '92. John was already working for the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office. He's a well respected officer, does a great job. He goes out and takes care of business. He represents the county well. He gets involved with helping in all the other stuff we do. He takes his job seriously. He's always there when there's an employee in need or we're having a fundraiser for someone. He's always giving that extra hand and helping pitch in whether it's money out of his pocket, or just doing the extra work that comes with this job," said Zwicke.

Zwicke says Captain Koch steps up in rank following this summer's retirement of longtime Captain Tom Meeley. He says Meeley's duties have now been delegated between Koch and Rios.

"Upon the retirement of Captain Tom Meeley, Lt. Jerry Rios was promoted to that position. Jerry oversees the administration part which includes dispatch, includes all the equipment, oversees the lieutenant that oversees the courthouse, the Justice Center, warrants, civil process, our transports of prisoners and then Captain Koch will be overseeing the operations of our patrol and our criminal investigations unit," said Zwicke.

In addition to Koch, other promotions are also being announced at the sheriff's office. They include Patrol Corporal Kelly Mann; Patrol Sergeant Thomas Jones; Patrol Lieutenant Clinton Garza.
