Veteran investigator promoted

  A detective with over 30 years of law-enforcement experience has been promoted to lieutenant, Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan announced today.

Hogan said Kevin Dykes, who has worked as a Chester County detective since 2001 on cases ranging from homicides to financial crimes, is widely respected. "He is an excellent investigator and a trusted supervisor," said Hogan. "Together with Chief James Vito, the promotion of Lt. Dykes provides the Chester County Detectives with outstanding leadership." Dykes will fill the position formerly held by Lt. James Brooks, who was let go earlier this month during the office's restructuring.

Prior to joining the detectives, Dykes worked as a state trooper from October 1981 to December 2001, where he handled major drug investigations and rose to the rank of corporal.
