A 27-year veteran of the Lombard Police Department, Lt. Roy Newton, has been named deputy chief of administration, department officials said Monday.

The promotion is effective immediately.


Newton, 47, began his career in Lombard in 1986 as a community service officer and rose through the ranks to become a patrol officer, detective, sergeant and lieutenant.

As deputy chief of administration, his duties will include overseeing the records department, accreditation efforts, facilities and software implementation.

Newton was raised in Lombard and attended Sacred Heart School and Glenbard East High School. He has a bachelor's degree from Benedictine University and is a graduate of the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command.

His appointment comes after former Deputy Chief Patrick Rollins stepped down in June to become chief of the Sugar Grove Police Department.
