Westville Cops to Learn Martial Arts

(Westville, IN) - While police agencies across the country are under fire for not providing kinder, gentler law enforcement, cops in Westville will soon be required to learn martial arts.

The topic came up at a recent special town board meeting. Westville's chief of police Darin Mercer said he wants to incorporate the skill into his officers' training.

Westville officers will now be required to have at least six hours of Jui Jitsu training each month at a local martial arts studio.
