INDIANAPOLIS – On Tuesday, State Senator Jim Arnold (D-LaPorte) 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.

Sen. Arnold represents District 8 in the Indiana State Senate which encompasses   the majority of LaPorte County including the City of LaPorte and the eastern part of Michigan City. It also includes western St. Joseph County and Davis, Oregon, Washington, Center and Jackson townships in Starke County. For more information on Sen. Arnold, his legislative agenda or other State Senate business call 1-800-382-9467 or visit www.IN.gov/S8.
