Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper is officially a brigadier general.


The presidential nomination and approval process is complete, and his assignment as commander of the 415th Chemical Brigade in Greenville, S.C. begins today.


Previously a colonel in the Army Reserve, Roper had been serving as chief of staff for the 87th U.S. Army Reserve Support Command in Birmingham.


"The entire process is the culmination of tremendous support by some great soldiers and leaders who mentored and gave me the opportunities to work the toughest jobs and assignments through the years,"


Roper said today. "My family and I have really been blessed with another opportunity to serve our nation."
