RANGELY | Rangely Town Manager Lisa Piering announced the promotion of Officer Ti Hamblin at the Sept. 24 Rangely Board of Trustees meeting to the Chief of Police position. Hamblin has been the Interim Chief of Police since January. Chief Hamblin came to Rangely from Grand Junction in 2008. He started his law enforcement career 14 years ago, with the last 11 years in Rangely. He received his Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) from the Delta/Montrose Technical College (now the Technical College of the Rockies) in Delta, Colorado. Hamblin resides in Rangely with his wife and two children.
He says the best part of living and working in Rangely is the community. “Rangely has always been great about welcoming outsiders into the community and embracing them as their own.”
His immediate goals as the new Chief of Police are to improve relationships within the community and to increase community policing and involvement.
