The Rochester Police Department promoted a few of its own Monday. 

Six officers were sworn in during a special promotions ceremony at the Public Safety Building. Of the six, one was promoted to Commander, one to Lieutenant, two to Sergeant and two to Investigator. Chief Michael Ciminelli says it is a big honor to get to this point.

"It's a lot of work. It takes a lot of effort to score well enough to get promoted, so I think it marks a very special achievement for each of them," he said.

This is the first promotions ceremony held since Ciminelli became chief.
