The Morris Police Department plans to have a sergeant's position again after a several year absence.

Morris Police Chief Ross Tiegs said the department has not had an officer who could qualify as sergeant under state Civil Service Commission rules. The qualifying rules include years of service, supervisory experience and education, Tiegs said.

The department now has two officers who qualify to apply for sergeant, Tiegs said.
