Zanesville Police Department welcomed their newest sergeant, earlier today at a swearing-in ceremony in City Council Chambers. Chris Rice served Z.P.D. for five years and in that short time he rose to the rank of sergeant, but family members say they never doubted he could escalate ranks so quickly. Rice's mother Lou Rice says Chris always excelled at everything he did and wife Amy Rice says Chris is a natural leader. Chris says he relishes his new promotion and looks forward to moving up the ranks of the department, if he is able to continue to move upward in rank.
