ARDMORE, OK -- The Ardmore police department held a promotion ceremony today for two of their officers.

Justin Eastwood and Larry Payne were promoted to the rank of corporal. The two say all the hard work and preparation for exams and interviews paid off Friday.

Payne, who's been on the force for four years, and Eastwood who has been with the department for eleven, were happy to achieve their new rank.

"It's something I've dreamed of ever since I became a police officer," said Eastwood. "That one day I'd have to opportunity to get promoted and she'd be able to pin the badge on my chest."

"Being a corporal will have a little bit more responsibility and a chance to step in and take charge in some cases when maybe a sargent isn't be available," said Payne. "It's something I look forward to and excited about the opportunity."

Both of the corporals celebrated the occasion with family and fellow officers.
