ST. CROIX - Bringing more than 25 years of police experience to the office, V.I. Police Lt. Thomas Hannah was named to the office of assistant police commissioner.
Police spokeswoman Melody Rames confirmed Wednesday that the appointment had been made.
Police Commissioner Rodney Querrard Sr. made the appointment to the position effective Sept. 16, promoting Hannah from his previous position of special assistant to the police commissioner.
Hannah has held a number of positions in the V.I. Police Department since he joined the force in 1987.
He was a police officer from 1987 to 1990, when he joined the Youth Investigation Bureau as an investigator. He served as Police public information officer and he held the title of Special Projects coordinator for the police commissioner.
Hannah was promoted to lieutenant and assumed the duties and responsibilities for the Police Training Academy in 2006. In 2007, he was named training director until later that year, when he was named St. Croix police chief and served in that capacity until 2009. He was named Territorial Crisis Intervention and Stress Management Coordinator from May 2009 to December 2010, when he was named special assistant to the police commissioner with collateral responsibilities.
As assistant police commissioner, Hannah replaces Raymond Hyndman, who served in that capacity from 2010 until late last year.
Hannah is scheduled to address the Rotary Club of St. Croix at its noon meeting today at Gertrude's Restaurant to discuss domestic violence and spousal, juvenile and elder abuse and other related topics.
