Attention Drivers: Please be aware of the new traffic control device located at the intersection of County Road 900 North and County Road 600 West.

McCordsville Police Officer Jeffrey Herber takes time out of his patrol to stop in and say hi during Bennet’s birthday outdoor birthday party. Bennet was turning 4 years old and really enjoys police cars and as luck would have it Officer Herber was more than glad to oblige Bennet’s wishes. From the smiles on everyone’s faces, it would appear that Bennet, his friends and family and Officer Herber enjoyed the festivities.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Lt. Aaron Allan's family and to our fellow brothers and sisters of the Southport Police Department.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE On Friday June 9, 2017, at approximately 8:40 a.m. officers of the McCordsville Police Department were dispatched to a residence in the 9900 block of North Briarway Lane for a welfare check on a mentally disturbed male individual. While officers were responding, the information was updated that the person with mental issues had allegedly thrown a lamp at a family member and allegedly used a firearm to threaten a family member’s life. Upon McCordsville Officers’ arrival, it was reported that the male individual had possession of a firearm and had made threatening statements to a family member. The family member was able to escape the residence, fled to a neighbor’s residence and continued speaking with responding officers and the dispatch center.

After multiple attempts to establish positive communications with the male subject, at approximately 9:20 a.m. the determination was made to request and activate the Hancock County Joint Tactical Team. The immediate area was evacuated; a perimeter secured and contact with the male individual was established. At approximately 10:30 a.m. the male individual surrendered himself to the Hancock County Joint Tactical Team. After surrendering to the Joint Tactical team, the individual was transported to the McCordsville Police Department and interviewed. After being interviewed by a Detective with the McCordsville Police Department, the male subject was transported to the St. Vincent’s Stress Center for mental evaluation. On June 14, 2017 charges were filed through the Hancock County Prosecutor’s Office and an active arrest warrant was issued for the male individual, identified as Tyler Halterman (29 years of age). Tyler Halterman was taken into custody on June 14, 2017 and transported to the Hancock County Jail. Tyler Halterman is currently being charged with pointing a loaded firearm (Level 6 Felony).

Trick or Treat hours for the Town of McCordsville are Monday October 31, 2016 between 5:30pm to 8:30pm. Below are just a few safety tips during Trick or Treating hours: - Please remember to SLOW DOWN and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways. - Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings (this means no texting and driving) - Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups. Children in that group should also have a cell phone availble in case of an emergency. - If at all possible walk on sidewalks or paths and make sure you look both ways before crossing a street. - Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors. Provide your children with glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers. - Last but not least, Officers will be patrolling your local neighborhoods during Trick or Treat hours. If you see an officer patrolling in a neighborhood dont hesitate to wave and wish him or her a Happy Halloween. We would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Halloween!!!
