Lisa Suepat appointed Winter Park deputy police chief
Suepat steps into role after longtime Winter Park Police leader Pam Marcum retires
Winter Park Police Chief Tim Volkerson appointed Lisa Suepat as new deputy chief of the department in the wake of several retirements.
Suepat, who first joined the department in 2006, will take on the job previously performed by Pam Marcum, who recently retired.
According to a social media post by the department, Suepat has worked in criminal investigations, patrol and most recently has overseen the community policing division. She is a native of New York and found a career in law enforcement like her father, who was a firearms and defense tactics instructor at the NYC Department of Corrections.
Mayor Phil Anderson recently lauded the police department, noting at least 14 promotions in the last 18 months.
“I just want to commend that department,” he said. “With a concentrated effort we have begun to fill a lot of our vacancies and we’ve made major strides in retention.”
