Requirement #150 to being a police officer....... Extremely thick skin!!!

Which Officer Wednesday Officer Tyler Capper is this weeks featured officer. Tyler was sworn in July of this year and is still in the training stages. He will be attending the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy next spring to gain his certifications. It’s great to have another local person giving back to the community!

Why do we pull people over??? The last minute turn signal, incomplete stop or speeding vehicle may seem petty to some but we’ve seen the unfortunate results of those actions. Please have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

Which Officer Wednesday Here we have Officer Craige Jarvis. Craige started with us November of 2017. Since then Craige has gone through a lot of training in preparation to serve the community. Craige will leave in November to attend the 15 week Indiana Law Enforcement Academy but will be back to continue his valuable service.

Congratulations to Antonio Gatlin and Hannah Armstrong on winning the bicycles! Be safe and enjoy!

We’re not always right. We’re not always wrong either. Mistakes will be made... Learn from them and move on!

Which Officer Wednesday This week we have Lt. Joel Allred. Joel started in January of 2015 and has been on the move since. Joel has a military background and currently serves in the reserves. He’s a kid at heart who routinely hangs out at the schools being a great role model for our youth. We’re glad he explored his options and chose to join our team!

Which Officer Wednesday This week we have Officer Clayton Elston. Clayton is from the Wells County area but spent some time in South Carolina where he was a sheriff’s deputy. Clayton moved back to Indiana and joined our team. We are glad to have him protecting our community.

Bad behavior is typically learned behavior. Be a model of Good behavior.

Danny is our K9 handler, SWAT commander, firearms instructor, shift sergeant along with many other duties! He is very dedicated to our community and loves to show off his K9 partner Bruno. Thanks for all you do Danny!

Our 3rd annual municipal softball games were a blast! (Mayor Hodgin shown throwing out the first pitch.) Huge thanks to Sgt. Patrick Clouse and the Indiana National Guard. We would also like to thank everyone who helped organize, get the field ready and donated to this event. At the end of the day everybody got to play and had a bunch of fun!

Come on down to Russ Sutton Babe Ruth Field! Bounce houses are up and games about to begin. Food at noon. Bicycles will be raffled later this afternoon. GET DOWN HERE!

Show up for food and fun! Bounce house and other entertainment. The bicycles will be drawn later in the day so if you haven’t signed up you still can tomorrow at the Russ Sutton Babe Ruth Field.

Change takes things like time, commitment, dedication, pride...... Either you're ALL IN or IN THE WAY!

Which Officer Wednesday This week we recognize Officer Kelsey Hugg. Kelsey came to our community in 2016 from Iowa. Kelsey is a great role model to our youth and a valuable asset to our community. She also makes a cool zombie! The picture with the helmet is when she was at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy learning emergency driving.

Which Officer Wednesday Lt. Cody Crouse started his law enforcement career November of 2012. Cody is very dedicated to making sure our community is a safe place for our children to grow. He can still find time to have a little fun! Cody has many years to continue providing a fun and safe service to our community.

Bring the kids up for bicycles and popsicles! You can register for a chance to win one of these bicycles until August 3rd. We will have the drawing August 4th during the City/County softball tournament held at the Babe Ruth field. We have plenty of popsicles!

Which Officer Wednesday Sgt. Ethan Cox has been with us since December 2013. Ethan is not only a great asset to our department but also to the community with everything he is involved with. Ethan is the example of “community policing”.
