Michael Horstman was promoted Friday to chief deputy in La Crosse County.

Horstman, who began his career as a correctional officer in the jail, has been working at the sheriff’s office for about 30 years, according to a press release. Horstman moved up the ranks; he was promoted to sergeant in 1997 and then again to captain in 2001. He served in the patrol division for about 20 years, has been a field training officer and is a member of the county’s emergency response team.

He replaces Jeff Wolf, who was sworn in earlier this week as the county’s new sheriff.
