Town fills police department slot

March 26, 2014 | 09:21 AM

The Corydon Town Council wasted no time Monday night hiring a police officer to succeed departed officer Kyle Reas, who was recently hired by the Harrison County Sheriff's Dept.

The board unanimously approved the hiring of 29-year-old Jeremy Ranke.

Corydon Police Chief James Kendall told the board prior to the vote that Ranke, who has been a reserve officer for the HCSD for about a decade, "has working knowledge of the law, grew up in the area and would be a good asset for the town of Corydon."

While Ranke has completed pre-basic training at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy near Plainfield, he will still have to complete ILEA's basic training within one year from the date he becomes a sworn, paid police officer.

In another matter, the board approved bonds for Kendall and fellow officer G. Todd Stinson, and the board discussed the clean-up of a property in the 400 block of Lemmon Street.
