William Cruz, the former interim chief of the Las Vegas Police Department, is now a San Miguel County sheriff’s deputy.
This week, the County Commission unanimously approved hiring Cruz, who spent nearly two decades with the Las Vegas police.
After Tim Gallegos resigned as chief in late 2006, then-Mayor Henry Sanchez appointed Cruz as the interim chief.
Cruz applied for the permanent position and was a top candidate, receiving the endorsement of the police officers union.
