10-year veteran cop promoted to lieutenant

A 10-year Hub City police veteran is the Hattiesburg Police Department's newest lieutenant tonight.  36-year-old former patrol Sergeant Dale Bounds was promoted to the rank of lieutenant by Assistant Police Chief Frank Misenhelter this morning.

The Petal native graduated from the Hattiesburg Police Academy in 1997 and since then, has served as a patrol officer and supervisor and a member of the NET Team.

"I owe a lot to my current lieutenant, Lt. Jackson," Lt. Bounds said after the brief ceremony, during which he received his lieutenant bars and a new badge.  

"He (Lt. Jackson) brought me up through the department and I appreciate him and also Chief Misenhelter for giving me the opportunity," Lt. Bounds said. 

"I know his leadership skills and he has a lot of experience that he can bring forward to the Patrol Division and teach some of our younger officers," said Assistant Chief Frank Misenhelter.  

Lt. Bounds replaces Lt. Peggy Sealy, who has moved from the Patrol Division to the Internal Affairs Division.
