 Raytown Chief of Police Jim Lynch has announced the promotion of Michelle Rogers to Captain, the first woman to be promoted to the rank of Captain in the Department’s history.

Captain Michelle Rogers has 24 years of law enforcement experience. Captain Rogers began her career at Raytown in the Records and Detention Unit in 1989. She became a police officer for Raytown in 1992.

In 1995, she was assigned to the Jackson County Drug Task Force, where she was the lead undercover Detective in numerous drug investigations. In 1999, Captain Rogers was awarded the COMBAT Law Enforcement Officer of the Year, for her contributions related to the investigation and prosecution of retail merchants involved in the volume sale of pseudoephedrine.

In 2000, Captain Rogers returned to Raytown for six months in patrol and then to Investigations for six years as a Detective and two years as a Corporal. In 2008, Captain Rogers was awarded the Crime Stoppers Officer of the Year, based on career achievement in investigations.

She was promoted to Sergeant in 2009, where she spent two years as a Patrol Sergeant. She also spent two years in the Professional Standards Unit before being promoted to Captain of Administrative Services on January 12th, 2014.

“We congratulate Captain Rogers on her promotion,” said Chief Lynch, “and know that she will continue to serve the City of Raytown with dedication, integrity and professionalism.”
