HURLEY - Iron County Sheriff Paul Samardich recently announced several promotions within the Sheriff's Department.

Deputy Jason Geach was promoted to chief deputy. He will be second in command in the department. The county board voted Tuesday to replace the undersheriff position with that of chief deputy.

Geach has served in the department since 2005, most recently as a patrol deputy. He was recently recognized by the Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigation for his leadership in a homicide case in Saxon in 2016.

Matthew Foryan was promoted to lieutenant investigator and will be leading investigation within the department. He has been a deputy with the department for 21 years, serving most recently as road sergeant.

Michael Randall was promoted to road patrol sergeant. He has been a deputy with the department since 2002 and was most recently recreational officer. His job duties will be supervising the road patrol and conducting investigations.

Deputy Luke Wozniak has been promoted to recreational officer. He has been Iron County deputy since 2015. His new duties will primarily include snowmobile and ATV patrol and enforcement.

Promotions were selected through a competitive bidding process, according to Samardich, and were approved by the Iron County Law Committee and the Iron County Board of Supervisors.
