On Tuesday, State Senator Jim Arnold presented a resolution in the Indiana Senate to honor the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association. Senate Resolution 12 recognizes the association for its outstanding contribution to both those in law enforcement and the citizens of Indiana.
This year marks the 85th anniversary of the Sheriffs’ Association which has served as a platform to promote better communication between sheriffs and other law enforcement personnel. The association shifted its focus toward providing education and training to department personnel and was incorporated as a non-profit.
“It was my honor to offer this resolution for the fifty newly elected sheriffs in Indiana,” said Sen. Arnold. “The work that our sheriffs do in our state is invaluable and often goes unrecognized. The protection and safety they provide for our communities is vital and they deserve to be recognized for it.”
Sen. Arnold served 36 years in law enforcement as a Deputy, Sergeant, Captain and Chief Deputy and retired as LaPorte County Sheriff in 2007.
