GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - It was a big day for two members of the Grand Forks police department.

Sergeant Gregory LaHaise was sworn in as the new lieutenant. Corporal Travis Benson was sworn in as the newest sergeant.

The basement of the police department was packed with friends, family members and other supporters Thursday morning during the public ceremony.

Benson says it feels great to be picked from a competitive pool of candidates.

"I feel pretty good. Like the chief said, there's a lot of quality people that were put in for promotion and it feels pretty good to come out on top," Cpl. Benson said.

LaHaise says the promotions are a culmination of a lot of hard work.
