The University of Pittsburgh Police Department announced four promotions, which took effect on April 3.

“I believe we are very fortunate to have such high caliber personnel in our department," Deputy Chief Holly Lamb said. "These four individuals will bring integrity, a great work ethic and leadership abilities to their new positions. These values will serve as examples for everyone, which will make the department much better as a whole.”

Riley, who joined the department in 2013, has spent the last three years as supervisor for the Community Programs Unit, which provides outreach to the campus community. She also oversees the Citizens Police Academy and the department's internship program.

Mock joined the department in 2005 and has overseen the emergency dispatchers and implementation of the Emergency Notification Service and the Rave Guardian mobile app. He also assists in compiling the data used to ensure the University is in compliance with the federal Clery Act, which requires that schools report campus crime data

Urban is a member of the motorcycle unit who's spent seven years with the department.
