For months, rumors have floated that Sheriff Bill Elder would name Colorado Springs Police Chief Pete Carey as undersheriff after Elder was re-elected Nov. 6.

Elder's office  has refused to confirm this, but Elder told command personnel on Dec. 14 that Carey will become his second-in-command in February upon the retirement of Undersheriff Joe Breister, sources tell the Independent.

Asked about that on Dec. 17, Sheriff's Office spokesperson Jackie Kirby tells the Indy in an email, "There was no such meeting on Friday and I cannot confirm. Your source is incorrect."

Now, KKTV reports Breister has submitted his retirement papers, effective in March, and Carey will take office on Feb. 11, days after his Feb. 1 retirement as police chief.
